Reviews - What do customers think about Compendious Syriac Grammar?
Good but dated Nov 18, 2007
Theodor Noldeke was a brilliant Semitist, and his grammar of Syriac (English version published 1904) is the most complete one currently available. However, the science of linguistics has made great strides since Noldeke's era and it is to be hoped that a new comprehensive grammar of Syriac will be forthcoming. In the meantime, though, Noldeke continues to be an indispensable part of the library of any student of Syriac. Takamitsu Muraoka's "Classical Syriac" (2nd ed., 2005), although not as extensive as Noldeke, is much more up-to-date and should also be part of the Syriacist's library.
