Neo-mandaic in early Mandaean colophons. Part 2: Texts, translations and conclusion

Research output: Contribution to journalReview articlepeer-review

Abstract

The first part of this article examined the features that distinguish the language of the earliest Mandaean colophons from Classical Mandaic and demonstrated that many of these features are shared with the contemporary Neo-Mandaic dialects recorded in the research literature since the 20th century. Part 2 presents editions and translations of the source texts with some brief philological notes and seeks to identify the origins of the linguistic innovations.
