Book by Roland Kent
Reviews: 2
This book offers a great many things, but is lacking in practicality. The book offers a good amount of information and detail of the language and does compare the language with others. Kent shows a good knowlege of Latin and Greek, yet his representation of New Persian in the comparisons are, at times, very inaccurate. Kent relies on the transcription solely and admittedly changes some of the characters with others that usually represent completely different sounds, yet his key is not an easily understood one. His treatment of the grammatical features are a bit disorganized at times.
Professor Kent's monumental book is still the most widely used work on old Persian. Although it is old (about fifty years old), it provides us with a complete overview of the inscriptions and their transliteration and transcriptions. In many cases, like the style of teaching the grammer, the need for a newer book is felt, something in the league of Nyberg's A Manual of Pahlavi. Still, a great buy, if you can find one!
