9781589832527: Sumerian Grammar (Handbook of Oriental Studies. Section One, the Near [And] Mi)

It seems safe to say that this Sumerian Grammar by Professor D.O. Edzard will become the new classic reference in the field. It is an up-to-date, reliable guide to the language of the Sumerians, the inventors of cuneiform writing in the late 4th millennium B.C., and thus essential contributors to the high cultural standard of the whole of Mesopotamia and beyond. Following traditional lines, the Grammar describes general characteristics, origins, linguistic environment, phonetics and phonology, morphology, syntax, and phraseology. Due attention is given to the symbiosis with Semitic Akkadian, with which Sumerian was to form a veritable linguistic area. With lucid explanations of all technical linguistic theory. Each transliteration carries its English translation.

He has been active over the years at the Iraq Museum, Baghdad, and Italian excavations at Tell Marikh (Ebla), Northern Syria. He is a member of the International Committee for the Ebla texts, the Bavarian Academy, the Royal Netherlands Academy, the American Philosophical Society, the Oriental Institute of the University of Chicago (Chicago Assyrian Dictionary), and the University Museum, Philadelphia.

Review:

'"Edzard's long familiarity with Sumerian has produced an insightful volume. He is frank about the problems with the languages and sometimes the inherent ambiguity of the evidence for testing various solutions...the breadth of sources used (both primary and secondary) is impressive."' John Gee, "Review of Biblical Literature," 2005.
