Charles Häberl, Introduction to Mandaic, Lesson 1

Charles Häberl, Introduction to Mandaic, Lesson 1 August 31, 2017

Charles Häberl recently taught a course on Mandaic in the Ukraine, and a video recording of the first lesson is available on YouTube. It provides an excellent overview of the academic study of the Mandaeans and their literature, before moving on to introduce the Mandaic alphabet as the starting point for learning the language, which is a dialect of Aramaic. If you know Syriac or Jewish Babylonian Aramaic, presumably some of the vocabulary words introduced at the very end of the lecture will be recognizable to you, either as the same words as occur in other dialects, or as cognates thereof.
