...We note that this considerable outpouring of research in Amarna has not as yet resulted in a revised edition of the tablets themselves. It was primarily with this fact in mind that the present essay was originally undertaken. In addition, I have attempted to show that the Canaanite Vorlage of the Byblian Amarna dialect was all-pervasive, reaching not only into grammar and syntax (as Moran has already capably demonstrated) but also into phraseology and mode of expression.
