Title: The Semitic Languages
Subtitle: An International Handbook
Edited By: Stefan Weninger
URL: http://www.degruyter.com/view/product/175227?format=G&rskey=IjVzSj&result=1
Series Title: Handbooks of Linguistics and Communication Science 36
Description:

The "Handbook of Semitic Languages" offers a comprehensive reference tool
for Semitic Linguistics in its broad sense. It is not restricted to comparative
Grammar, although it covers also comparative aspects, including classification.
By comprising a chapter on typology and sections with sociolinguistic focus and
language contact, the conception of the book aims at a rather complete,
unbiased description of the state of the art in Semitics. Articles on individual
languages and dialects give basic facts as location, numbers of speakers,
scripts, numbers of extant texts and their nature, attestation where appropriate,
and salient features of the grammar and lexicon of the respective variety. "The
Handbook" is the most comprehensive treatment of the Semitic language family
since many decades.
