About the Authors
  • Originally published in 1895, this volume was created to provide a grammatical guide to the various dialects of the Eastern Syrians (Nestorians or Chaldeans) inhabiting the mountains of Kurdistan, the plains of Azerbaijan in north-west Persia, and Mosul in eastern Turkey. Highly organised and informative, the text provides a practical guide to the various dialects used in these areas, many of which had only recently begun to be written down. This is an important book that will be of value to anyone with an interest in Eastern Syriac and the history of linguistics.
