Semitic Phonemes with Special Reference to the Ugaritic and in the Light of the Egyptian Evidence
Language Interpretation and Translation
Phonetics and Phonology
Our task is to study the phonemes of the Semitic language, including, so far as is reasonably certain, the Egyptian language, and paying particular attention to new evidence made available by the discovery of Ugaritic. This task will require dealing with descriptive phonemics, which is the analysis of the phonetic nature of each phoneme in each stage of development in the several languages.
