Some aspects of Aramaic as attested in Lebanese place names
Stockholm University, Faculty of Humanities, Department of Oriental Languages.
2012 (Swedish)In: Orientalia Suecana, ISSN 0078-6578, E-ISSN 2001-7324, Vol. 61 Suppl., p. 21-29Article in journal (Refereed) Published
Abstract [en]

Place names are one of the few sources of information about the Aramaic used in the region of Lebanon for more than two millennia. Therefore a comparative and diachronic study of Lebanese place names is of the utmost importance. The present study is based on a sample of 1724 place names from the regions of Mount Lebanon and North Lebanon. Four features of Aramaic as attested in place names are discussed briefly: two from phonology and two from morphology. The preliminary conclusion one can arrive at is that the Aramaic used in Lebanon is clearly, and as expected, of the Western type. It has a complex development which in some cases is parallel to, yet often distinct from, the development of its Modern West Aramaic cousins
