Dear Vadim,

There is quite a lot of inscriptions in Phoenician and Punic, so the 
dialects are relatively well known. Because of lack of vowels in 
Phoenician/Punic and Ugaritic there is some speculation behind the 
the conclusions drawn by scholars, but by and large the grammatical 
systems can be trusted.
