Reviews & Quotes
"John Halloran’s Sumerian Lexicon represents a very welcome addition to the reference tools every teacher and student of Sumerian should own. Reminiscent of the Cambridge Concise Dictionary of Akkadian that dispenses with original text citations, this simply formatted glossary of Sumerian offers the reader an up-to-date window into the rich vocabulary of a language 4000 years dead."
R.K. Englund, Professor of Assyriology, UCLA
"Hallorans important book deserves our highest appreciation and gratitude as a highly useful and user-friendly tool ad usum Delphini as well as for experienced Assyriologists and scholars in different fields approaching the obscure' Sumerian language and literature"
Orientalia (Vol. 77, Fasc. 1, 2008)
"...Halloran’s work stands with other trusted Sumerian lexical tools and even surpasses them in his description of grammatical elements. In this way his work is
truly a “guide” to Sumerian in addition to being a thorough and compact dictionary. [...] the reader will find it a useful and informative addition to the bookshelf.'"
Review of Biblical Literature (2008)
"Halloran has managed to collect an impressive range of Sumerian words, and the brief definitions make sense for most of the texts one reads with students.'"
