Hi all,

I have seen some interesting sounding titles by Joshua Blau - but they all seem a bit hard to find and slightly pricey.  In addition most are listed by booksellers in Israel - and I am not proficient in modern Hebrew!

I have been studying the relationship of Hebrew to Arabic and Aramaic - particularly in terms of common derivation from an original protosemitic language or group of dialects.  I have Gesenius, Jouon/Muraoka, Waltke, vander Merwe, Berstrasser, and Kaltner (Beyond Babel) among others.  

Would anyone here recommend anything by Blau?

Additionally are there any other recommended semitics books?  Moscati perhaps?

Thanks to all.
