Part two of the Soqotri-language 'A Tale of Two Brothers' has
been published in the Spring 2010 California Linguistic Notes (CLN).The first part of
the tale can be found at the Semitic Language Archive(SemArch) at
Heidelberg University (http://www.semarch.uni-hd.de/index.php4?lang=en). The
posting for part one can be found here at:
Where the first part of the story is very close to the well-known ancient Egyptian text from the
Papyrus d'Orbiney, the second part is a combination of several folk stories not
related to the plot of the second half in the original text. In the published Soqotri
text, some connections to the ancient Canaan and his cults are explored.
This second installment of folk tales, with commentary, may be found at:
