>I was looking to see if the "B Aramaic" still existed but perhaps it does not. I've been looking at some various Aramaic grammars. Pretty thin pickings. I have the works by Alger Johns and Stevenson. I have not seen Greenspahn or Rosenthal but I hear they are good (esp the latter). Anyone here familiar with David Marcus' grammar or the volume on "Galilean Aramaic" by Caspar Levias? Perhaps the Bergstrasser and Brockelmann give a good overview of Aramaic?
>I feel pretty confident with Hebrew and I'm mostly concerned with the biblical era (non-Syriac) Aramaic. It seems that most of the available grammar just concentrate on the small portions of Aramaic in the bible and ignore the DSS, Targums, and other important writings.
