Title: An Introduction to the Study of the Chaldee Language comprising a Grammar
Written By: George Longfield
Series Title: LINCOM Orientalia 41

The Chaldee Grammer which forms the first part of this work is mainly based upon Winer's "Grammatik des Biblischen und Targumischen Chaldaismus". The present grammar, though shorter than Winer's, will probably be considered sufficently extensive for the class of students for whom it is intended, - those who are already acquainted with the principles of Hebrew Grammar.

The fact that the Chaldee is the original language of a portion of the Scriptures would alone justify an attempt like the present to furnish a simple introduction to the study of the language. Its importance, in a philological sense of view, and as affording aid to the student in acquiring the other Semitic dialects, and especially the Syriac, to which it is intimately related, will also be generally admitted (from the preface). Contents: Of the elements (letters, vowels, and acents, changes of consonants and vowels). Parts of speech and inflexion (pronouns, verb, nouns, particles). Syntax.Paradigms. Analysis of the text of the Chaldee portion of the book of Daniel, Index (Re-edition; originally published 1859 in London; written in English).
