Hitherto, a practical exercise book has not been at our disposal for Hittite classes, as Friedrich’s indispensable "Elementarbuch" is intended for reference rather than for systematic learning of the language. In view of the steadily growing importance of Hittite research within Indoeuropean and Oriental Studies, this presents a quite unsatisfactory situation. The present Hittite Exercise Book written by Susanne Zeilfelder and translated by Esther-Miriam Wagner emerged from academic practice and is first and foremost designed to serve didactic purposes. Each chapter concentrates on one field of grammar, which can be practiced in the following exercises. This means that, in the course of translation, some grammatical features have to be anticipated that are described only in subsequent paragraphs. To facilitate the handling of the exercise book, there is a tabular summary at the beginning of each chapter for quick reference. Additionally, all word forms are determined in the glossary. At the end of each paragraph, there are examples for further practice of the treated topic.
This is the second revised edition of Hittite Exercise Book.
