Abstract:

The "Handbook of 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.
