(crosslisted) JWST 6221 (CU-ITL) Fall. Not offered 2017-2018. 4 credits. Letter grades only.
Prerequisite: Intermediate Arabic and familiarity with the Hebrew alphabet. Permission of instructor required.
This seminar presents an introduction to Judeo-Arabic through the study of selected classical texts and the study of its grammar and lexicon. Because Judeo-Arabic combines elements of Hebrew and Arabic the course will also study aspects of the two classical languages in comparative perspective and examine how the development of classical Arabic grammar established the study of classical Hebrew grammar.
