LEXICON OF BIBLICAL ARAMAIC

LEXICON OF BIBLICAL ARAMAIC
$32.00
J.A. Fitzmyer translated Vogt's lexicon into English because so few people, even biblical scholars, read Latin today, or at least consider a lexicon of Biblical Aramaic written in Latin of little value . The value of Vogt's lexicon is found in the examples of the use of a given word in extrabiblical texts, which he has supplied. In this translation he has added further examples from the many Aramaic texts among the Dead Sea Scrolls, published after Vogt had finished his work.

Robinsons Paradigms & Exercises in Syriac Grammar

Robinsons Paradigms & Exercises in Syriac Grammar
$43.95
T. H. Robinson's Paradigms and exercises in Syriac Grammar was first published in 1915 to meet the need for "something of an elementary nature which should be of value to the student who takes up Syriac for the first time." Since then, the book has met this need for generations of students. The fifth edition of 2002 remains the grammar of choice for many teachers of Syriac classes as well as for students learning by themselves. The present revision, drawing on ten more years of university teaching experience and students' comments, clarifies some of the grammatical explanations and exercises. Improvements to the fonts and a larger format make for easier reading. As before, the West Syriac script and grammatical tradition are followed in the body of the lessons, and appendices introduce reading in the other (estrangela and Eastern) scripts. The book remains a plain and friendly introduction to this important language.
