  abstract = {The recent book, The Sumerian Language, by Marie-Louise Thomsen provides a valuable survey of the field of Sumerian grammatical studies today and constitutes a reliable and unbiased guide to its many differences of opinion. The scope of the book thus invites consideration of many questions of a general nature. Those here addressed are (1) the question of when Sumerian ceased too be a living language, (2) implications of distrust of our sources, (3) questions of periodization, (4) of assumptions of phonetic change, (5) of the precision of the terms animate-inanimate for the Sumerian genders, (6) of the terms for the verbal prefixes, (7) of the terms hamtu and maru, (8) "asyntactic" and "subordinate," (9) "pronominal conjugation," (10) "Mesanepada construction," and (11) the meaning of the term Emesal. A final section deals with a few details.},
