This volume "is intended primarily to equip students for the reading of the Targums and the Aramaic portions of the Palestinian Talmud and Midrashim, and to provide a help to the study of the Aramaic elements contained in the writings of the New Testament. "The Aramaic of the books of Ezra and Daniel is perhaps best learned after a study has been made of one of the dialects just named. Its forms and uses, therefore, are noted in a supplementary way throughout the grammar. At the same time those who choose to begin with Old Testament Aramaic may do so with the help of the special paradigms at the end of the book. . . ." --from the Preface
