A Grammar of Qumran Aramaic
Muraoka, T.

Leuven: Peeters, 2011 pp. xlvi + 285. Ä70.00

Series Information
Ancient Near Eastern Studies Supplement, 38

Description: This is a comprehensive reference grammar of Qumran Aramaic. Not only Aramaic texts from Qumran caves, but also contemporary texts originating from other neighbouring locations in the Judaean Desert such as Nahal Hever, Murabba'at, Jericho, and Massada are covered. It would be an important tool of study for specialists in Aramaic linguistics, the Jewish culture of the Second Temple period, and the New Testament. The scope and nature of the grammar is comparable to that of Muraoka - Porten, A Grammar of Egyptian Aramaic (2nd revised ed., 2003).

Subjects: Literature, Methods, Linguistics, Aramaic, Dead Sea Scrolls
