NOTE ON THE ENGLISH EDITION
PREFACE TO THE SECOND EDITION / Grammar / Ethiopic Grammar. Dillmann / NOTE ON THE ENGLISH EDITION ยง 1. GENERAL REMARKS ON THE ETHIOPIC LANGUAGE.

It is with great pleasure that I avail myself of the opportunity, here afforded me, of expressing my thorough approval of Dr. Crichton's translation of Dillmann's work, which will form a worthy companion-volume to his recent edition of Prof. Nöldeke's ‘Syriac Grammar’. The clear and idiomatic English, into which Dillmann's rather difficult German has been rendered, testifies once more to Dr. Crichton's ability and skill in such translation, as well as to the minute and conscientious accuracy, combined with sound scholarship, with which he has undertaken and brought to a successful completion his laborious task. I venture to hope and believe that Dillmann's book will henceforth appeal with effect to a still wider circle of readers, and increase yet farther the interest taken in Ethiopic Grammar among English-speaking students of Semitic.

Heidelberg, November 1906.
