A great dictionary, arranged in alphabetical order by root, with a section at the back for Biblical Aramaic. If the root you need is far from obvious, you can frequently find the word you're translating with a note saying what root to look under. If you're not sure you're looking under the right root, each definition comes with concordance info. Each entry contains cognates in other Semitic languages. Great for working with etymology.
