Samples of Khorramshahr Neo-Mandaic
I am pleased to announce that The Neo-Mandaic Dialect of Khorramshahr
has been accepted for publication by Otto Harrassowitz Verlag. Consequently,
I must remove all portions of the grammar to be published from this website.
I am in the process of applying for a grant from the National Sciences Foundation
to continue my work in Neo-Mandaic and find more material to place online.
In the meantime, I will be adding to the MP3 files of the texts found in
the dissertation here.
The NSF proposal, if funded, would allow me to expand the 500-term lexicon
in The Neo-Mandaic Dialect of Khorramshahr to a proper dictionary
of the language of 5,000 terms or more, incorporating all of the material
thus far published (and some material that has remained unpublished). Here
is a Swadesh list of 207 terms.
