Recommends it for: everyone who is interested into semitic languages - it's a must!
Shelves: semitology
the book features a very useful overview on most of the semitic languages, such as amharic, hebrew and arabic, but also lesser known as epigraphic south arabian. it gives a short survey on each of them as well as quite complex information on important grammatical details. it proved itself more and more useful the more i got the chance to use it.
