Edited by Lutz Edzard and Stephan Guth
The series Porta Linguarum Orientalium, founded in 1864 by Julius Heinrich Petermann, later in the 20th century under the editorship of Franz Rosenthal and Werner Diem, since 2014 edited by Lutz Edzard and Stephan Guth, constitutes an academic forum for grammars, pedagogical manuals, chrestomathies, and comparative manuals of the most important languages in the Middle East and central Asia. Thus, the series has an important role within the publishing portfolio of Harrassowitz Verlag.
In particular, it comprises volumes on Semitic languages (Akkadian, Arabic, Hebrew, Aramaic, Gəʿəz, Amharic), Coptic, Ottoman Turkish, modern Persian, Bahasa Indonésia, and Mongolian. The series also comprises comparative reference works on Semitic languages and the languages of the Islamic cultural area. All contributors are leading scholars in their respective fields. The volumes of the series are subject to periodical review and, where appropriate, new editions. In individual cases, English versions of monographs originally published in German are published. The volumes of the series are of interest to scholars and students alike and are conceived both as pedagogical manuals and reference works.
