An introduction surveys the history of studying Syriac grammar and technical terminology is explained and discussed in the appropriate places throughout the text. Finally, a short outline of Syriac poetic meters with examples and the mention of authors associated with each meter concludes the volume, which will be a welcome addition in Arabic to serious students of Syriac.
