Title: Sumerian Grammar
Written By: D. O. Edzard
URL: http://www.brill.nl/default.aspx?partid=10&pid=25551
Series Title: Handbook of Oriental Studies. Section 1: The Near and Middle East
Description:

It seems safe to say that this Sumerian Grammar by Professor D.O. Edzard
will become the new classic reference in the field. It is an up-to-date,
reliable guide to the language of the Sumerians, the inventors of cuneiform
writing in the late 4th millennium B.C., and thus essential contributors to
the high cultural standard of the whole of Mesopotamia and beyond.

Following traditional lines, the Grammar describes general characteristics,
origins, linguistic environment, phonetics and phonology, morphology,
syntax, and phraseology.

Due attention is given to the symbiosis with Semitic Akkadian, with which
Sumerian was to form a veritable linguistic area.

With lucid explanations of all technical linguistic theory. Each
transliteration carries its English translation.
