Wednesday Giveaway - Basics of Ancient Ugaritic
This new work from Michael Williams is an ideal
first text for entering the larger world of Semitic languages, and is also this
week’s Wednesday giveaway!
Basics of Ancient Ugaritic is a teaching grammar
of this ancient language, one spoken at the time of Abraham and occurring in
ancient texts in cuneiform writing. It begins with the alphabet, and each new
lesson builds on the ones before it.
Designed for use by either individuals, or in a
classroom setting, each chapter concludes with a set of exercises allowing
students to know whether they are grasping the fundamentals of the language.
