There has been considerable progress in the field of Ugaritic studies since the mid-twentieth century, largely because the increased number of texts now available has led to significant advances in epigraphy, grammatical analysis and lexicography.
However, it is difficult to access the proposals made in lexicography because they are scattered in various publications (and because scholars follow different criteria). This dictionary sets out the results obtained so far in a systematic way and provides answers to unresolved problems by applying recent techniques of lexicographical analysis and the conclusions reached in other branches of Semitic philology. It lists all independent morphemes ("words") and attached morphemes ("affixes") and the proper names of people (PN), places (TN), deities (DN) and months (MN). Each lexical definition is followed by a set of isolexemes, bibliographical references and translations in context. The work is an updated and considerably augmented English language version - prepared by W.G.E. Watson - of G. Del Olmo Lete and J. Sanmartin, Diccionario de la lengua ugaritica, vols. I and II.
