Syntagmen mit Nachgestelltem KL im Alt-, Reichs- und Mittelaramäisch

Translated title of the contribution: Syntagmas with Postpositional kl in Old, Imperial, and Middle Aramaic

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


The common word kl 'all, every', although being widely attested in the Old to Middle Aramaic dialects, has as yet not enjoyed sufficient syntactical treatment. The present article hopes to be a first step in examining its different usages in each dialect as well as presenting a diachronic perspective of these usages. It surveys all those syntagms in each of the mentioned dialects in which kl - mainly with suffixes but also without them - follows a noun and it undertakes to define the grammatical circumstances conditioning them. In comparing the findings for each dialect, the concluding chapter presents their implications for Aramaic dialect geography in general and the evolution of the post-Achaemenid dialects in particular.
