Matthew Morgenstern reviews Charles Häberl’s The Neo-Mandaic Dialect of Khorramshahr March 20, 2012

Here’s the conclusion from a review of the book The Neo-Mandaic Dialect of Khorramshahr by my co-worker on the Mandaean Book of John translation project, Charles Häberl:

In summary, we have before us an outstanding contribution to the study of one of the rarest Semitic languages spoken today. Häberl is to be thanked for having brought all the tools of modern field linguistics and his wide understanding of general linguistics to clarify many of the basic issues in the phonology, morphology and syntax of this precious survival of Southern Babylonian Aramaic.
