Since the mid-twentieth century Ugaritic studies has witnessed an enormous
increase of edited texts. Naturally, but scattered in numerous
publications, at the same time huge advances have been made in epigraphy,
grammatical analysis and lexicography.
The current dictionary is an updated and considerably augmented English
edition â prepared by W.G.E. Watson â of
G. Del Olmo Lete and J. SanmartÃn, <i>Diccionario de la
lengua ugaritica</i>. It systematically brings together all insights
gained so far, and provides answers to numerous existing lexical problems
by applying new techniques of lexicographical analysis, and at the same
time drawing from conclusions reached in other branches of Semitic philology.
The work is a complete inventory of words (morphemes) and meanings, affixes
and proper names of Ugarit as studied so far. With isolexemes, full
bibliographical references and translations in context.
A true, modern and indispensable key to understanding Ugarit.
