Letter Writing and Language Change

Edited By Anita Auer, Daniel Schreier, and Richard J. Watts

This book "challenges the assumption that there is only one 'legitimate' and homogenous form of English or of any other language" and "supports the view of different/alternative histories of the English language and will appeal to readers who are skeptical of 'standard' language ideology."

Title: Grammar of Palestinian Jewish Aramaic
Written By: Wm. B. Stevenson
URL: http://lincom-shop.eu
Series Title: LINCOM Gramatica 46
Description:

This introduction to Palestinian Jewish Aramaic presupposes a general
knowledge of Hebrew and some other Semitic language, such as Syriac or
Arabic. It is intended primarily to equip students of the Targums and the
Aramaic portions of the Palestinian Talmud and Midrashim, and to provide a
help to the study of the Aramaic elements contained in the writing (from the
preface, p. 3).

The grammar contains chapters on orthography, nominal morphology (pronouns.
interrogatives, demonstratives, declensions), verbal morphology (stems, tenses,
infinitives, participles). (Re-edition; originally published 1924 in Oxford; written in
English):
