Synopsis: This monograph continues the tradition of synchronic and diachronic studies of select groups of cuneiform texts from the Late Bronze Age, such as the correspondence from scribes in Egypt (Cochavi-Rainey 1988) and Amurru (Izre'el 1991). The concept is to select a corpus of texts from one geographical area which spans the 14th and 13th c BCE. In that sense, the study is diachronic. On the other hand, the texts are studied in the context of the Akkadian dialects in which cuneiform epistles were being written throughout the ancient Near East. Thus, the study is also synchronic.
