It is astounding how few dictionaries have been published for Aramaic in the last century. The standard dictionaries such as Payne Smith, Jastrow and Levy are all about a century or more old. This article discusses the current state of Aramaic lexicography against the background of Semitic lexicography in general, and it provides an overview of Aramaic dictionaries for each of the dialects, concluding with a profile for future Aramaic lexicography.
