A Biblical Aramaic Reader: With An Outline Grammar
A Biblical Aramaic Reader: With an Outline Grammar
This reader is for anyone very eager to read the story of Daniel in the lions' den and many other fascinating stories in their original language, Aramaic.
A brief outline of Biblical Aramaic grammar is followed by a verse-to-verse grammatical commentary on the Aramaic chapters in the books of Daniel and Ezra. Both the outline grammar and the grammatical commentary presuppose basic knowledge of the grammar and vocabulary of Biblical Hebrew. Constant references are made in the commentary to relevant sections of the outline grammar. The commentary is written in a user-friendly, not overtly technical language. Some grammatical exercises with keys and paradigms conclude the Reader. Also suitable for self-study.
..".Professor Emeritus Takamitsu Muraoka's recent volume is a welcome pedagogical edition to teaching Biblical Aramaic in a biblical and exegetical studies curriculum." --Jordan M. Scheetz, Review of Biblical Literature 10.30.16
