The following book was assembled from teaching materials developed for academic Syriac lessons. Over the course of 15 lessons, it addresses all areas of Syriac grammar, with an increasing level of difficulty. The lessons are accompanied by corresponding exercises. The texts used in the exercises are drawn from classical Syriac literature, and serve to illustrate the grammatical themes addressed in the lesson. Each lesson also contains a table of vocabulary prior to the exercises. Knowledge of the vocabulary presented in the lesson is assumed. Beginning with Lesson 8, verb forms are presented separately after the vocabulary table. At the back of the book, you will find a glossary and a bibliography.
