Title: Late Samaritan Hebrew
Subtitle: A Linguistic Analysis of its Different Types
Written By: M. Florentin
URL: http://www.brill.nl/default.aspx?partid=10&pid=21556
Series Title: Studies in Semitic Language & Linguistics
Description:

This book provides a comprehensive grammatical and lexicographical review
of all types of late Samaritan Hebrew in all their literary manifestations
from the twelfth century to the present. Much of it is devoted to
description of Hybrid Samaritan Hebrew (HSH), which since the 13th is used
as the main written language of the Samaritan community. The whole
research is based on study of a wide range of texts. All available
liturgical material was computer-recorded and then analyzed. A vast array
of chronicles, colophons and deeds of sale copied from manuscripts were
also computerized. Included as well are unpublished manuscripts of prayers.
Audio recordings and phonetic transcriptions were made of dozens of
Samaritan prayers and piyyutim, and served as a database for the
phonological and the morphological analysis of the language.
