Ugaritic, discovered in 1929, is a North-West Semitic language, documented on clay tablets (about 1250 texts) and dated from the period between the fourteenth and the twelfth centuries B.C.E. The documents are of various types: literary, administrative, lexicological. Numerous Ugaritic tablets contain portions of a poetic cycle pertaining to the Ugaritic pantheon. Another part, the administrative documents, shed light on the organization of Ugarit, thus contributing greatly to our understanding of the history and culture of the biblical and Northwest Semitic world.

This important reference work, a revised and translated edition of the author’s Hebrew publication (Beer Sheva, 1993), deals with the phonology, morphology, and syntax of Ugaritic. The book contains also an appendix with text selections.

Daniel Sivan, Ph.D., is Professor of Biblical Hebrew and North-West Semitic languages at Beer Sheva University; he also teaches at Bar Ilan University. His publications include studies on grammatical aspects of Biblical Hebrew and Ugaritic.

“Ugaritologists are not alone to benefit from Sivan’s work, for students of the Hebrew Bible will also find in its pages relevant support for their research.”
— Stanislav Segert, Journal of the American Oriental Society
