"... presents a collection of 480 cuneiform signs used in the Sumerian literary texts of the Old Babylonian period. The inventory of sign forms exclusively refers to texts from Nippur and Ur as well as to the relevant tablets kept in the collections of the University Museum (Philadelphia), the British Museum (London) and the Hilprecht-Sammlung (Jena). Most of the signs listed have been collated. The sign list is classified according to Old Babylonia main forms. Each entry consists of a main form and up to 16 variants supposed to cover the spectrum of a sign as far as possible. All forms are listed with their quotations differentiated according to the origins of the tablet. In addition to the sign forms the list also provides the corresponding values and Diri. Some of the values are explained in detail in a commentary at the end of the sign list." --Colophon.

This textbook provides an introduction to the grammar of Sumerian, one of the oldest documented languages in the world. It not only synthesizes the results of recent scholarship but introduces original insights on many important questions. The book is designed to appeal to readers of all backgrounds, including those with no prior background in Sumerian or cuneiform writing.It is written for undergraduate students and structured for a semester-long course: the order of the topics is determined by didactic considerations, with the focus on syntactic analysis and evidence. It explains the functioning of Sumerian grammar in 16 lessons, illustrated with more than 500 fully glossed examples. Each lesson ends with a series of tasks; a solution key to selected exercises can be found at the end of the volume. Above all, this is the first Sumerian textbook that introduces and utilizes the online assyriological resources available on the internet. An Introduction to the Grammar of Sumerian has been written on the assumption that after decades of grammatical research it has become possible now to teach a general framework of Sumerian grammar that may function as the basis of further, more intensive and elaborate studies.

The so-called Sumerian conjugation prefixes are the most poorly understood and perplexing elements of Sumerian verbal morphology. Approaching the problem from a functional-typological perspective and basing the analysis upon semantics, Professor Woods argues that these elements, in their primary function, constitute a system of grammatical voice, in which the active voice is set against the middle voice. The latter is represented by heavy and light markers that differ with respect to focus and emphasis. As a system of grammatical voice, the conjugation prefixes provided Sumerian speakers with a linguistic means of altering the perspective from which events may be viewed, giving speakers a series of options for better approximating in language the infinitely graded spectrum of human conceptualization and experience.
