CDL has published a new English-Akkadian dictionary incorporating the CAD, CDA (Black et al), and the newer Assyrian-English-Assyrian dictionary edited by Parpola and Whiting.
Jim Davila quips “This will be handy for your Akkadian composition course.”
We actually have an old hand prepared English index to the CAD in our library. It was very useful for figuring out what word a scholar was reading in their English translation if there was damage or a break.
Also if you were tired and just worked backwards from the English to prepare your Akkadian text. Not that I ever did that.Explore posts in the same categories: Uncategorized
