Excerpt from First Steps in Assyrian: A Book for Beginners; Being a Series of Historical, Mythological, Religious, Magical, Epistolary and Other Texts Printed in Cuneiform Characters With Interlinear Transliteration and Translation
The translations have been made as literal a... s is consistent with the difference which exists between the Assyrian and English languages, and usually the meaning of every word will be found beneath it. In the few passages in which this is not the case reference to the vocabulary will enable the reader to identify the words and their meanings. In the full vocabulary which follows the texts the words are arranged alphabetically; words clearly derived from the same root are placed together, but where ever this might cause the beginner difficulty cross references have been added. It may be remarked, in passing, that the reader who possesses a knowledge of Hebrew will find it most useful in his Assyrian studies; such knowledge, however, on his part, has not been assumed anywhere throughout the book.
