The second half of the 19th century saw a noticeable rise in the interest of Neo-Aramaic dialects. This volume by Adalbert Merx (1838-1909) is a collection of texts from the dialect of Urmia. The texts include stories, material on baptism, a wedding, Araq and wine, history of the region, and several letters or parts thereof. The texts are given in a Serto script fully vocalized with eastern vowels and a parallel German translation (except the version of Luke 1, which has a transcription instead of translation). There is no glossary, but the translation and the notes, which point out words not clear from (classical) Syriac, including foreign (Persian, Kurdish, and Turkish) words, fill that void in less space. Linguists, folklorists, and historians will find this collection a welcome reappearance.

Metrical Homilies of Mar Jacob of Sarug
Translation and Introduction by Thomas Kollamparampil

This edition of Mar Jacob of Sarug's (d. 521) homily on Pentecost draws a comparison between the Upper Room where the disciples receive the Holy Spirt and the Tower of Babel. The division of the tongues at Babel was a sign that the Good News would be spoken in all tongues. The One who divided the tongues at Babel gave the tongues of fire as well. The volume constitutes a fascicle of The Metrical Homilies of Mar Jacob of Sarug, which, when complete, will contain the original Syriac text of Jacob's surviving sermons, fully vocalized, alongside an annotated English translation.
