This introduction to Palestinian Jewish Aramaic presupposes a general knowledge of Hebrew and some other Semitic language, such as Syriac or Arabic. It is intended primarily to equip students of the Targums and the Aramaic portions of the Palestinian Talmud and Midrashim, and to provide a help to the study of the Aramaic elements contained in the writing (from the preface, p. 3).
