Title: The Mehri Language of Oman
Written By: Aaron D. Rubin
URL: http://www.brill.nl/default.aspx?partid=210&pid=33447
Series Title: Studies in Semitic Languages and Linguistics
Description:

This volume contains a detailed grammatical description of the Omani dialect of
Mehri, an unwritten Semitic language of the Modern South Arabian group. It is
the first complete grammar of any Modern South Arabian language in a hundred
years, and the first ever Mehri grammar based on the Omani dialect, making it
an important contribution to the field of Semitic studies in general. Topics in
phonology, all aspects of morphology, and a variety of syntactic features are
covered in this volume. The grammar is based on texts collected by T.M.
Johnstone, and published by H. Stroomer.
