Semitic and Afroasiatic: Challenges and Opportunities, edited by Lutz Edzard, supplies Semiticists and general linguists with thorough sketches and text specimens of the Afroasiatic branches Egyptian, Berber, Cushitic, Chadic, and Omotic. The volume presents some of the challenges and opportunities for scholars who want to gain a better understanding of certain notorious problems in Semitic linguistics, many of which deserve and need to be investigated in their wider Afroasiatic context. The reader will also have an opportunity to work with larger text specimens of selected representative languages belonging to the different branches of Afroasiatic. In that respect the volume endeavors to go beyond a purely paradigmatic representation of the languages and branches involved. The volume contains contributions by Lutz Edzard, Ruth Kramer, Mohamed Elmedlaoui, David Appleyard, Kjell Magne Yri, Herrmann Jungraithmayr, Rolf Theil, and Binyam Sisay Mendisu.
