Syriac Headwords Info

Those working with M. Sokoloff's new English translation of Brockelmann's Lexicon Syriacum (or with the original for that matter) will discover many instances wherein headwords found in the CAL are not found in that work. The reason is that Brockelmann included not a few such headwords under other forms with the same meaning. He probably did so because given his organization of entries by Aramaic root, his users would have no problem finding the entry. Sokoloff has reordered headwords in alphabetical order, however, so it is no longer easy to find such forms in his dictionary. We have prevailed upon him to provide our users with a list of such words along with cross-references to the entry wherein they are to be found.
