Grammar of the Aramaic Syriac Language is one of the best written Syriac grammars produced in Arabic, covering orthography, morphology, and syntax. It follows the eastern grammatical tradition by classifying morphology under nouns, verbs, and prepositions. A unique feature is the inclusion of all grammatical terminology in Syriac. The volume also includes a brief history of the Aramaic-speaking people.
Paul Al-Khoury Al-Kfarnissy (1888-1963) was professor of Syriac at the Lebanese Maronite Order. His writings include an unpublished history of Syriac literature.
