Since then, the book has met this need for generations of students. The fifth edition of 2002, extensively revised by J.F. Coakley, remains the grammar of choice for many teachers of Syriac classes as well as for students learning by themselves. The sixth edition, drawing on ten more years of university teaching experience and students' comments, clarifies some of the grammatical explanations and exercises. Improvements to the fonts and a larger format make for easier reading. As before, West Syriac script and grammatical traditions are followed in the body of the lessons, and appendices introduce reading in the other (estrangela and Eastern) scripts. The book remains a plain and friendly introduction to this important language. (Back cover)."@en ;
