I am pleased to introduce my new English-Assyrian-Arabic Dictionary. This book is the result of long years of work and is intended to help our Assyrian communities retain their language in these countries of diaspora.



"This trilingual dictionary (English, Modern Assyrian, Arabic) is a unique achievement from different perspectives. Linguistically, it allows the reader/researcher the flexibility of cross-language investigation in one location. Professionally, it is a unique production not just because it is trilingual, but also because it is opulent in semantic and grammatical information pertinent to each entry. As for the personal merits of the author/compiler, I respectfully salute his patience and hard work throughout the last three decades of his life."
