Abstract:

This volume contains a detailed grammatical description of the dialects of Old
Arabic attested in the Safaitic script, an Ancient North Arabian alphabet used
mainly in the deserts of southern Syria and north-eastern Jordan in the
pre-Islamic period. It is the first complete grammar of any Ancient North
Arabian corpus, making it an important contribution to the fields of Arabic
and Semitic studies. The volume covers topics in script and orthography,
phonology, morphology, and syntax, and contains an appendix of over 500
inscriptions and an annotated dictionary. The grammar is based on a corpus of
33,000 Safaitic inscriptions.
