Summary and Info
The Phoenician-Punic Dictionary is the most comprehensive word thesaurus of the Phoenician language yet collected and published, and a unique informational sourcebook for the Phoenician literature and culture. The entries are drawn from texts spanning more than thousand years of civilization, from Late Bronze Age to the Late Roman period, many appearing for the first time, among them specimens of traditional Phoenician poetry, Greek drama in Punic translation and Punic historiographic prose. The text sources of all entries appear in original translations, based on the author's research and publications of many years in Phoenician and Punic grammar and literature. The dictionary will be a useful and practical tool both for students of Phoenician language, literature and culture and for specialists in the study of the literatures and cultures of the Biblical and Classical worlds. Charles R. Krahmalkov is Professor of Ancient and Biblical Languages in the Department of Near Eastern Studies of the University of Michigan.
