News flash! John Alan Halloran's Sumerian Lexicon: A Dictionary Guide to the Ancient Sumerian Language may be out-of-stock at distributors, but the publisher has over ten copies in stock. These copies were beautifully printed by the printer, but were returned to the publisher in Los Angeles by the distributor, usually because several page corners became temporarily creased during distribution. The books have never been used, so they are still brand new. They are reduced in price by $10.00.
Sumerian Lexicon: A Dictionary Guide to the Ancient Sumerian Language, by John Alan Halloran, Logogram Publishing, Los Angeles, 1st edition, 2006, 336 pages including a 14-page Introduction and bibliography; 6 inch by 9 inch paperback.
"In sum, we see that Halloran's work stands with other trusted Sumerian lexical tools and even surpasses them in his description of grammatical elements. In this way his work is truly a "guide" to Sumerian in addition to being a thorough and compact dictionary. The easy-to-use alphabetic and numeric arrangement of the entries is also a vast improvement on the arrangement of his web-based lexicon with its own internal logic. Also, in addition to definitions, he frequently provides the reader with etymologies, the frequency of archaic occurrences, and the number of sign concatenations that make up the sign under discussion."
"Halloran's work as a whole is sound, and the reader will find it a useful and informative addition to the bookshelf." (quotes from John Engle's August 30, 2008 review for http://www.bookreviews.org)Place Secure Order for Sumerian Language Books
