Not only is this Sumerian Lexicon the most complete available dictionary of ancient Sumerian vocabulary, with a wide range of actually used meanings in the definitions, but it aids the reader of texts with extensive coverage of Sumerian's grammatical particles.
There is a new version 3 of John L. Hayes, A Manual of Sumerian Grammar and Texts, Third Revised and Expanded Edition, Malibu 2018, 579 pages. Hayes introduces beginning students to the Sumerian language and cuneiform writing in the form of 30 lessons. Each of the lessons introduces new vocabulary, parts of speech, and additional cuneiform signs in the way that the Sumerians wrote them (as opposed to their later Assyrian form). The text for version 3 has been completely revised, and new reading selections added. These include several inscriptions of Gudea, and passages from three major Sumerian literary texts. The appendices discuss the sign lists and other resources that are available to Sumerologists.
The Sumerian Language book, by Marie-Louise Thomsen is out of print. This is a well-organized grammar of the language. My Sumerian Lexicon book includes in its alphabetical organization all of the verbal prefix combinations that Thomsen documents in her grammar book, with references to the ThSLa section numbers.
