Sumerian Grammar in Babylonian Theory

E-mail Stampa PDF

Black Jeremy A.

“Studia Pohl: Series Marior” 12

Second Revised Edition 20041 - pp. I-XII + 168




All the works studied in this volume have been published before, with the exception of a few new fragmentary texts in the revised appendices 5.3 and 5.4.

The present detailed investigation takes it as excuse that while these works are often caled as witnesses in support of various philological arguments, no unified attempt to evaluate them in their context as the products of an ancient scholarly discipline has so far appeared.

The Author tries to show that current analyses of the Sumerian forms into tenses or ‘aspects’ are based on a misunderstanding of the way the Babylonians set some of their tenses (or aspects or whatever they are) against Sumerian forms in these grammatical texts.

Then the Author describes the various ways in which the choice of forms may operate in Sumerian, and finally makes a suggestion as to how these might have developed.


Late Babylonian Field Plans in the British Museum

Nemet-Nejat, Karen R.

“Studia Pohl Series Maior” 11

1982, pp. XVI-461 + 56 tavv.




This study discusses a collection of seventy Late Babylonian field plans in the British Museum.

The provenience of these tablets, when known, is with rare exceptions, Babylon, and many are dated to the reign of King Darius.

They form a unified corpus and serve to fill a gap in our knowledge of the cartographic phenomenon of field plans, up to now attested only for the Neo-Sumerian, Old Babylonian and Middle Babylonian periods. With the exception of Text 23 all tablets in this corpus are previously unpublished.

The tablets have been re-numbered in this study on the basis of the number of field plans extant on them and the dates of the texts have been converted to the Julian calendar .

Caplice, Richard

“Studia Pohl Series Maior” 9

2002 Fourth Edition (revised reprint of third edition), pp. X-106 + 1 tab.




The present edition of the Introduction to Akkadian is fully revised, and supplied with indices to the Akkadian vocabularies and sign-lists, an English-Akkadian glossary, and a paradigm of the strong verbs.

The Introduction is intended as a tool in offering a twelve lessons or one semester 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 chose from Old Babylonian, but signs are introduced, as is customary, in their Neo-Assyrian form.

In addition to the twelve lessons there are appendices dealing with Akkadian phonetics and metrology, indices, and a paradigm of the strong verb.


The Four Egyptian Homographic Roots B-3

E-mail Stampa PDF

Ward, William A.

“Studia Pohl Series Maior” 6

1978, pp. XVI-196 + 6 figg.




The purpose of this study is to examine in detail four Egyptian roots with the consonantal structure B-3 which have distinct origins and meanings.

The author shows that while there are scores of terms in Egyptian which derive from an original biconsonantal B-3, they are not all related to each other but arise from four quite separate roots. While these words have sometimes been confused with each other or derived from the same root, a close look at their various contexts and their relation to similarity constructed words and to the Semitic cognates involved shows this is not the case.

The study of these roots shows that is possible to clarify with more precision the etymology of many common terms and allows appreciating the role of morphological changes.

Mayer, Werner

“Studia Pohl: Series Maior” 5

1976, pp. XVI-576




Die vorliegende Untersuchung wurde im Jahre 1975 von der Philosophischen Fakultät der Universität Münster/Westfalen als Dissertation angenommen.

Herrn Prof. W. Von Soden, unter dessen Leitung die Arbeit entsandt, möchte ich hier an erster Stelle danken für seine stets wohlwollende Förderung, für so manche Hilfe bei der Interpretation der Texte, für Kollationen in London sowie für zahlreiche Anregungen, Ergänzungen und Hinweise.

Auf die Idee, mich mit den “Gebetsbeschwörungen” näher zu befassen, brachte mich Prof. O. Loretz, der mir auch seine Kollationen zu Berliner Texten sowie seine Kopien von Londoner Texten großzügig zur Verfügung stellte.
