The contributors and the dialects represented are: Ancient Aramaic Monumental Inscriptions (A. Dupont-Sommer); Aramaic Texts from Achaemenid Times (F. Rosenthal); Biblical Aramaic (H.L. Ginsberg, includes all the Aramaic texts of the Bible); Palmyrene-Hatran-Nabataean (H. Ingholt); Jewish Palestinian Aramaic (Y.E. Kutscher); Samaritan (Z. Ben-Hayyim); Palestinian Syriac (M. Black); Syriac (R. Köbert); Babylonian Talmudic (Y.E. Kutscher), Mandaic (R. Macuch); The Aramaic Dialect of Maʿlūla (A. Spitaler); Eastern Neo-Aramaic: Urmi and Zakho (H. J.
