About-

Dillmann's Ethiopic Grammar -- along with his lexicon, chrestomathy, Ethiopic text of 1 Enoch, and Ethiopic edition of the Bible -- established the benchmark in Ethiopic studies. After an introduction to the language and its history, this volume covers orthography and phonology, morphology, and syntax. Included are nine tables on: the alphabet, verb formation, pronoun formation, verbal suffixes, and the gender-and number-formation of nouns.

Endorsements & Reviews-

"The renewed interest taken in Semitic studies in general within these recent years, and in particular the continued issue . . . of numerous and important Ethiopic texts, encourage the hope that an English edition of the leading Ethiopic Grammar may prove not wholly unwelcome to English-speaking students. . . . Few competent judges will challenge the claim of Dillmann's Grammar to be thus described. . . . The serious student of Ethiopic must still have recourse to Dillmann's work, particularly in the form given to it in the second edition by Prof. Bezold. It is from that edition that the present translation has been rendered.

He taught at the universities of Tubingen, Kiel, Giessen, and Berlin. In 1875-76 Dillmann was the Rektor of the University of Berlin, and in 1881 he was the President of the International Congress of Orientalists.
