Muraoka: An Introduction to Egyptian Aramaic. Pb

!
  • An Introduction to Egyptian Aramaic
  • Takamitsu Muraoka 
  • Paperback, 416 pages
  • This is an introductory grammar of Egyptian Aramaic, a form of Aramaic which occurs in documents originating in Egypt, mostly in Elephantine where there was a Jewish community during the Persian period. They date from the end of the 7th to the third century BCE. Most of the documents are either administrative or legal in nature, but also include some literary pieces such as Proverbs of Ahiqar, private, familial letters, and documents of religious significance. Basic knowledge of Biblical Hebrew is assumed, but not that of any other Aramaic idiom, though Egyptian Aramaic is very closely related to Biblical Aramaic. In the grammar part of the book, the morphosyntax and syntax occupy nearly half of its pages. In addition, there is an anthology of sixteen, quite extensively annotated texts, followed by a glossary covering all the texts included in the anthology and various indices. A useful instrument for students of Aramaic in general, Biblical Aramaic in particular. Throughout the grammar, constant comparison is made with Biblical Aramaic.

Muraoka: Grammar of Qumran Aramaic. Cloth

!
  • A Grammar of Qumran Aramaic.
  • T. Muraoka 2011
  • XLVI-285 p. 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).
