Assuming I can convince one of my professors to change the time for a class, I plan on taking three courses next quarter. First, I will continue into the 3rd sequence of Akkadian. I look forward to this because I’ll finally have a basic grasp of the Akkadian grammar. Plus, I’ll be more prepared to utilized Akkadian in any future papers. Second, I will continue into the third sequence of Biblical Hebrew; however, because we’ve finished Lamdbin’s grammar already, it will be a reading course for the book of Psalms. For the paper at the end of the quarter, I hope to write about Psalm 82. Finally, I will take another language course: Old South Arabian. Although it is often times used, it is becoming more and more recognized as an important thing to consider along with ancient Israelite history and literature. Names of people who use Old South Arabian inscriptions for this purpose include, though are not limited to, Seth Sanders and Laruen Monroe.
It will be a great quarter!
