about this item

This four-volume set documents the Neo-Aramaic dialect spoken by Assyrian Christians in the region of Urmi (northwestern Iran), focusing on the state of the dialect as spoken today by the older generation. The author reexamines the phonology of the dialect, using instrumental measurements, and develops a new transcription system, and also presents a systematic description and documentation of the syntax and lexicon. The first two volumes cover the grammar of the dialect, including the phonology, morphology, and syntax. The third volume contains a study of the lexicon, through a series of lists of words of various lexical fields and a full dictionary of etymologies. The final volume consists of transcriptions and translations of oral texts, including folktales and descriptions of culture and history. Annotation ©2016 Ringgold, Inc., Portland, OR (protoview.com)
