Chapter Summary

This front matter section of the book Comparative Lexical Studies in Neo-Mandaic contains the table of contents, preface, acknowledgements and a list of symbols and abbreviations. The book deals with salient lexical features of one of the rarest and most seriously endangered modern varieties of Aramaic. Being an offshoot of a pre-modern vernacular closely related to Classical Mandaic, and having developed within the confines of a few isolated language-islets in the extreme southwestern part of the fragmented arc-like spectrum of Neo-Aramaic (NA) dialects, Neo-Mandaic exhibits idiosyncratic features quite unlike those of any other NA variety. It therefore constitutes a separate branch within modern Aramaic.

Keywords: Aramaic; Lexical Studies; Neo-Aramaic (NA) dialects; Neo-Mandaic
