Overview

Basics of Ancient Ugaritic is a teaching grammar of this ancient language, one spoken at the time of Abraham occurring in ancient texts in cuneiform writing. Beginning with the alphabet, each new lesson builds on the ones before it. Unlike synthetic Ugaritic grammars—which have been known to be overwhelming for students—Basics of Ancient Ugaritic draws from cuneiform texts and lets students explore the language practically.

Basics of Ancient Ugaritic can be used for learning the language by individuals on their own or in a classroom setting. Each chapter concludes with a set of exercises allowing students to know whether they are grasping the fundamentals of the language. Basics of Ancient Ugaritic represents an ideal first text for entering the larger world of Semitic languages.
