Title: A Dictionary of Samaritan Aramaic
Written By: A. Tal
URL: http://www.brill.nl/default.aspx?partid=10&pid=9057
Series Title: Handbook of Oriental Studies. Section 1: The Near and Middle East
Description:

Given the many excellent editions of Samaritan writings (e.g. The
Pentateuch) in recent years, the need was felt for a comprehensive
dictionary of Samaritan Aramaic. Abraham Tal’s Dictionary of Samaritan
Aramaic, the first dictionary of its kind, contains the vocabulary of the
Aramaic dialect in which the Samaritans composed their texts, from the
beginning of their literature in the fourth century C.E. when Aramaic was
the community’s vernacular, until the end of the use of Aramaic in the
eleventh century, when it was replaced by Arabic.

Over a period of more than fifteen years the author has exhaustively
collected material form the Samaritans’ translations of the Pentateuch,
their liturgy, literary compositions, chronicles, etc., as presented in the
growing corpus of scholarly editions. Comparative material from adjacent
Palestinian Aramaic dialects is adduced where functional. With ample
linguistic and textual notes.

Particularly important for the study of Aramaic Jewish and Christian
sources composed during the Roman and Byzantine periods in the Land of
Israel, and an absolute must for Biblical Scholars.

Entries in Samaritan-Aramaic (Hebrew block script); English translations;
Hebrew translations; bibliographical abbreviations, etc., in English.
