Once the general rules of grammar of a language have been learned, it is often helpful to have translated and annotated texts for practice to see how those rules work. This is the approach taken in the present volume, which is a grammar of Syriac that begins with an overview of the basic grammatical concepts, but focuses on the learning of Syriac through reading texts. The volume includes many selected passages for reading, and each passage is accompanied by copious notes with grammatical, syntactical, and morphological information to guide the reader through the translation.

Leshono Suryoyo

First Studies in Syriac
ISBN: 1-59333-190-8
John Healey’s, Leshono Suryoyo, is an introductory grammar for those wishing to learn to read Classical Syriac, one of the major literary dialects of Aramaic and the language of one of the main groups of Middle Eastern churches, including the Syrian Orthodox Church, the Church of the East, and the Chaldaean Church. From the first centuries of the Christian era, Syriac was used by the main theological and historical writers of this tradition (Ephrem the Syrian, Philoxenus of Mabbogh, Thomas of Marga, and Barhebraeus). It also continues to be used in worship.

The New Syriac Primer, 2nd Edition

ISBN: 978-1-59333-325-6
A truly useful introduction to the Syriac language is a rare find. This practical initiation to the study of this ancient language of the Christian church speaks with clarity and authority. A fruitful integration of scholarly introduction and practical application, this primer is more than a simple grammar or syntactic introduction to the language. Writing in a style designed for beginners, Kiraz avoids technical language and strives for a reader-friendly inductive approach. Readings from actual Syriac texts allow the student to experience the language first hand and the basics of the grammar of the language are ably explained. The book comes with downloadable material so that readers may listen to all reading sentences and text passages in the book.
