Title: A Grammar of the Ugaritic Language
Subtitle: Second impression with corrections
Written By: D. Sivan
URL: http://www.brill.nl/default.aspx?partid=10&pid=2846
Series Title: Handbook of Oriental Studies. Section 1: The Near and Middle East
Description:

Ugaritic, discovered in 1929, is a North-West Semitic language, documented
on clay tablets (about 1250 texts) and dated from the period between the
14th and the 12th centuries B.C.E. The documents are of various types:
literary, administrative, lexicological. Numerous Ugaritic tablets contain
portions of a poetic cycle pertaining to the Ugaritic pantheon. Another
part, the administrative documents shed light on the organization of
Ugarit, thus contributing greatly to our understanding of the history and
culture of the biblical and North-West Semitic world.

This important reference work, a revised and translated edition of the
author's Hebrew publication (Beer Sheva, 1993), deals with the phonology,
morphology and syntax of Ugaritic. The book contains also an appendix with
text selections.
