Ancient Semitic

Post by NolanusTrismegistus »

For those of you interested in ancient Semitic and Afro-Asiatic languages (including ancient Egyptian and Coptic), I thought I'd mention this high quality, well researched YT channel called Ancient Semitic.

( I'm not at all affiliated with the creator, I just enjoy the content! )

So far, he's covered Akkadian, Ugaritic, Canaanite (and Punic), Hebrew, Aramaic, Arabic, and he's planning on more videos, especially on ancient Egyptian and Coptic (which he's already touched on a bit in his overview videos).

His lectures are very useful especially for drilling into details around pronounciation, morphology, history, extant literary material and inscriptions, and a survey of some of the scholarly debates.
