Abstract:

This book offers a thorough, authoritative account of the branches of Semitic.
These include some of the world's oldest attested languages, among them
Akkadian, Aramaic, Hebrew, Arabic, and Ethiopic, as well as various modern
languages. Gideon Goldenberg describes their history, geographical
distribution, writing systems, and genetic classification. He examines their
main features and distinctive characteristics, including their phonology,
morphemes, derivational morphology, verbal systems, syntactic relationships,
and their typological significance. He also discusses the pioneering work and
achievements of medieval Arabic and Hebrew scholars in theoretical and
descriptive aspects of grammar, lexicography, and philology. Professor
Goldenberg's balanced, undogmatic account presents the fruits of a lifetime of
original research: it will be widely welcomed by scholars and advanced
students of the Semitic languages and linguistic typology.
