The semitic languages : an international handbook by Geoffrey Khan( )

23 editions published between 2011 and 2012 in English and Multiple languages and held by 1,702 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The handbook The Semitic Languages offers a comprehensive reference tool for Semitic Linguistics in its broad sense. It is not restricted to comparative Grammar, although it covers also comparative aspects, including classification. By comprising a chapter on typology and sections with sociolinguistic focus and language contact, the conception of the book aims at a rather complete, unbiased description of the state of the art in Semitics. Articles on individual languages and dialects give basic facts as location, numbers of speakers, scripts, numbers of extant texts and their nature, attestation where appropriate, and salient features of the grammar and lexicon of the respective variety. The handbook is the most comprehensive treatment of the Semitic language family since many decades." Prové de l'editor

The Tiberian pronunciation tradition of Biblical Hebrew : including a critical edition and English translation of the sections on consonants and vowels in the Masoretic treatise Hidāyat al-Qāri' "Guide for the reader" by Geoffrey Khan( )

31 editions published in 2020 in English and Undetermined and held by 845 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The form of Biblical Hebrew that is presented in printed editions, with vocalization and accent signs, has its origin in medieval manuscripts of the Bible. The vocalization and accent signs are notation systems that were created in Tiberias in the early Islamic period by scholars known as the Tiberian Masoretes, but the oral tradition they represent has roots in antiquity. The grammatical textbooks and reference grammars of Biblical Hebrew in use today are heirs to centuries of tradition of grammatical works on Biblical Hebrew in Europe. The paradox is that this European tradition of Biblical Hebrew grammar did not have direct access to the way the Tiberian Masoretes were pronouncing Biblical Hebrew
The neo-Aramaic dialect of Qaraqosh by Geoffrey Khan( )

13 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 786 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Containing a detailed grammatical description of the spoken Aramaic dialect of the Christian community in the town of Qaraqosh, which lies on the Mosul plain in Northern Iraq, this volume also includes a transcription of oral texts recorded in the dialect. The grammar is based on extensive fieldwork carried out among native speakers. It consists of sections on phonology, morphology and syntax. There is also a study of semantic fields in the lexicon of the dialect and full glossaries of lexical items. This Aramaic dialect has never been described before. It is one of the most archaic dialects in group known as North Eastern Neo-Aramaic that contains many features that have not been found in other dialects. These include several lexical elements that are not found in earlier literary Aramaic but can be traced back to Akkadian and Sumerian. Knowledge of the dialect is now being lost among the younger generations, so this volume is an important linguistic record

Studies in the grammar and lexicon of neo-Aramaic by Paul M Noorlander( )

6 editions published in 2021 in English and Undetermined and held by 328 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Neo-Aramaic dialects are modern vernacular forms of Aramaic, which has a documented history in the Middle East of over 3,000 years. Due to upheavals in the Middle East over the last one hundred years, thousands of speakers of Neo-Aramaic dialects have been forced to migrate from their homes or have perished in massacres. As a result, the dialects are now highly endangered. The dialects exhibit a remarkable diversity of structures. Moreover, the considerable depth of attestation of Aramaic from earlier periods provides evidence for pathways of change. For these reasons the research of Neo-A

The early Karaite tradition of Hebrew grammatical thought : including a critical edition, translation and analysis of the Diqduq of ʼAbū Yaʻqūb Yūsuf ibn Nūḥ on the Hagiographa by Geoffrey Khan( Book )

15 editions published in 2000 in English and Hebrew and held by 165 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

One of the earliest Karaite grammatical texts that have come down to us from the Middle Ages, is the Diqduq, by 'Abū Ya'qūb Yūsuf ibn Nūḥ, of Jerusalem. It is a grammatical commentary on the Hebrew Bible. This volume presents a critical edition of a large section of that Hebrew grammatical text, together with an annotated English translation and a detailed analysis of its contents. The analysis concerns the tradition of Hebrew grammatical thought that was developed in the Middle Ages by grammarians belonging to the Karaite movement of Judaism. The work is an important contribution to the study of the history of Hebrew grammar and to the study of medieval Jewish thought in general. It brings to light, for the first time, one of the major Hebrew grammatical texts from the tenth century, which predates most of the works of the Spanish school of Hebrew grammar
