The Amarna letters, cuneiform tablets dating from the mid-14th century that were found at the site of Achetaton, constitute the most significant historical source in the study of international relations in the ancient Near East in the 14th century BC. Most of the Amarna letters are written in Canaano-Akkadian, and originate from small kingdoms in Syria and Palestine, and it is these texts that are studied in this work. The first part of this study intends to individualize, insofar as possible, the scribes who wrote the letters from the Syrian and Palestinian kingdoms (excluding letters from Ugarit and other localities). The various corpora are presented, and the correspondence from each corpora is structured and analyzed. The purpose of the second part is to show, through specific and by no means exhaustive studies, the usefulness of the methodology of palaeographic identification of the hands of the scribe as a tool for future investigation, at various levels, of the Canaanite letters from Amarna.

This four-volume reference work deals with the language of the Amarna letters written by scribes who had adopted a peculiar dialect mixture of Accadian and West Semitic syntax. In addition to the texts from Canaan, a few from Alashia are included along with the texts from Kamed el-Loz and Taanach.Each of the first three volumes is written as a separate monograph; together they treat the problems of morphology and syntax. The first volume covers writing, pronouns and nouns (substantives, adjectives and numerals); the second volume treats the verbal system; and the third volume discusses particles and adverbs with a chapter on word order. The fourth volume includes the bibliography and index to the set.Since these texts are the earliest witness to West Semitic syntax, they are an invaluable source for the historical study of the North West Semitic family, including biblical Hebrew.
