The North Arabian Seminar will investigate a number of different, mainly epigraphical, sources to the history of Semitic languages in the North Arabian area. We will begin by reading Al-Jallad's book An Outline of the Grammar of the Safaitic Inscriptions (Brill 2015), inscriptions pp. 221–295. Participants are requested to familiarize themselves with Al-Jallad's book and with literature on the ANA languages.
