Abstract [en]

This book is the culmination of the Turabdin Project which goal is to monitor the development of Modern Literary Syriac essentially from the 1980s to the present. As a Scandinavian project, the majority of the data consists of literature written and published in Sweden. The approach is descriptive and contrastive relative to the Classical language, significant differences between Modern Literary Syriac and Classical Syriac are noted. The main focus is on neologisms and new developments in the lexicon.The present volume is subdivided into two parts. Part One, Context and Analysis, places the collected Modern Literary Syriac neologisms in their sociolinguistic context and presents an analysis of the most prominent features that characterise the data. Part Two, Glossary of Neologisms, consists of the list of neologisms collected, presenting the meaning of the entries, as deduced from their context, as well as proposed etymologies, their relationship to Classical Syriac, attestations in the sources, synonyms in Modern Literary Syriac when available in the data, and other relevant information. Finally, an Index of English Terms and Expressions is appended to the end of the book. Here the English translations of the neologisms discussed in the present volume are listed.
