> Hello,

There're some bibliographical tools about the subject you're interested: it
is not complicated to search, for example, in the catalogues ( on line and
thematic) of Walter de Gruyter Publishers.

I remind myself now of a introductory book ( IU supposed you know it) edited
by S. Moscati, E. Ullendorff , etc : I have no the book now at hand but the
title is something like "Introduction to the Comparative Semitic Languages":
it's a basic book , easy to find also and it offers a very important
synthesis of the grammatical affinities and differences between Hebrew,
Arabic and other Semitic Languages.

Of course there are more references.

With my very best wishes,

F. J. Weismann
