The present Work forms one of a series of "Reading Lessons," of which the Hebrew, Arabic, and Aramaic have already appeared.
The plan of these works is simple, but it is hoped, complete. They consist of the elements of the Grammar with copious extracts from the language. The extracts are grammatically analysed word by word, and an exact translation into English is added.
To the present Work, the prefixed Syriac Grammar is more than usually extensive, on the count of scarcity of introductory grammars to the Syriac Language.
