Letter Writing and Language Change

Edited By Anita Auer, Daniel Schreier, and Richard J. Watts

This book "challenges the assumption that there is only one 'legitimate' and homogenous form of English or of any other language" and "supports the view of different/alternative histories of the English language and will appeal to readers who are skeptical of 'standard' language ideology."

Title: A Grammar of Egyptian Aramaic
Subtitle: Second revised edition.
Written By: T. Muraoka
B. Porten
URL: http://www.brill.nl/default.aspx?partid=10&pid=18037
Series Title: Handbook of Oriental Studies. Section 1: The Near and Middle East
Description:

This is the second revised edition of the first up-to-date, and complete
grammar of Egyptian Aramaic as presented in texts of Egyptian provenance
dating from the middle of the first millennium B.C.E. and as edited by B.
Porten and A. Yardeni in their Textbook of Aramaic Documents from Ancient
Egypt (Jerusalem, 1986-1999). The grammar covers not only the phonology and
morphology, but contains a substantial section on morphosyntax and syntax.
It is a descriptive grammar enriched with the expert knowledge and
familiarity of one of the co-authors with the contents and background of
the texts in question. It is meant to replace P. Leander's Laut- und
Formenlehre des Ägyptisch-Aramäischen (1928), but also supplements it
substantially, because it had no syntax. Due to the utmost importance and
interest of these ancient texts, this grammar is a vade mecum for every
Aramaist, Semitist and Historian in the field.
