Introduction to Akkadian
Introduction to Akkadian.
Twelve lesson course in essential Akkadian grammar.
The reading exercises in transliteration and in cuneiform are designed to introduce the student to common vocabulary and basic cuneiform signs. The exercises are chosen from Old Babylonian, but signs are introduced, as is customary, in their Neo-Assyrian form; phonetic values of signs are primarily those in use in Old Babylonian, but prominent values of later periods are also given, in parenthese.
In addition to the twelve lessons, there are also appendices dealing with Akkadian phonetics and metrology, indices and a paradigm of the stong verb.
Revised edition with indices to the Akkadian vocabularies and sign-lists and an English-Akkadian glossary.
