Dictionary of the Assyrian Language

ByAlexander J. Oraham

Usually printed in 3 - 5 business days
Alexander J. Oraham was born in Urmia in 1898. He came to the United States in 1913 to pursue a medical education and received a doctorate in Microbiology in 1925. In 1941 he started a printing business called the Consolidated Press or the Assyrian Press of America. His most well known work is the Assyrian-English dictionary which he compiled and printed with the help of his wife Almas who set the Assyrian type. Unfortunately two other promised dictionaries (an English-Assyrian and an Assyrian only) never appeared. Apart from the dictionary, Alexander only published a few other small items; two of which are included in this volume. Alexander was one of the last Assyrian printers in the United States to print in Assyrian with movable type and despite several efforts by others over the years; his dictionary remains the standard Assyrian-English dictionary.
