Ancient Languages of Syria-Palestine and Arabia

Em 2004 foi publicada uma aclamada enciclopédia das Línguas Antigas do Mundo, The Cambridge Encyclopedia of the World's Ancient Languages, obra dirigida por Roger D. Woodard, Professor of Classics at the State University of New York, Buffalo.

Pois vejo agora que, em maio de 2008, foram publicados alguns volumes derivados da enciclopédia, e que tratam de línguas de regiões específicas, como as Línguas Antigas da Síria-Palestina e da Arábia e as Línguas Antigas da Mesopotâmia, do Egito e de Aksum [que fica na Etiópia]. Isto facilita a aquisição! As descrições abaixo são da página da Amazon.com.


WOODARD, R. D. (ed.) The Ancient Languages of Syria-Palestine and Arabia. New York: Cambridge University Press, 2008, 282 p. - ISBN 9780521684989.

"This book, derived from the acclaimed Cambridge Encyclopedia of the World's Ancient Languages, describes the ancient languages of Syria-Palestine and Arabia, for the convenience of students and specialists working in that area. Each chapter of the work focuses on an individual language or, in some instances, a set of closely related varieties of a language. Providing a full descriptive presentation, each of these chapters examines the writing system(s), phonology, morphology, syntax and lexicon of that language, and places the language within its proper linguistic and historical context. The volume brings together an international array of scholars, each a leading specialist in ancient language study. While designed primarily for scholars and students of linguistics, this work will prove invaluable to all whose studies take them into the realm of ancient language". Roger D. Woodard is the Andrew V.V. Raymond Professor of Classics at the State University of New York, Buffalo.
