With 6,400 entries, this is the most complete available lexicon of ancient Sumerian vocabulary. It replaces version 3 of the author's "Sumerian Lexicon", which has served an audience of over 380,000 visitors since 1999. This published version adds over 2,600 new entries, and corrects or expands many of the previous entries. Also, following the express wish of a majority of online lexicon users, it has merged together and sorted the logogram words and the compound words into purely alphabetical order. This book will be an indispensable reference for anyone trying to translate Sumerian texts. Also, due to the historical position of ancient Sumer as the world's first urban civilisation, cultural and linguistic archaeologists will discover a wealth of information for research.

MEDIA REVIEWS
John Halloran s Sumerian Lexicon represents a very welcome addition to the reference tools every teacher and student of Sumerian should own. Reminiscent of the Cambridge Concise Dictionary of Akkadian that dispenses with original text citations, this simply formatted glossary of Sumerian offers the reader an up-to-date window into the rich vocabulary of a language 4000 years dead.--R.K. Englund, Professor of Assyriology, UCLA "R.K. Englund, Professor of Assyriology, UCLA ""
Hallorans important book deserves our highest appreciation and gratitude as a highly useful and user-friendly tool ad usum Delphini as well as for experienced Assyriologists and scholars in different fields approaching the obscure' Sumerian language and literature--Notizia Palmiro "Orientalia, Vol. 77, Fasc. 1, 2008 "
...Halloran s work stands with other trusted Sumerian lexical tools and even surpasses them in his description of grammatical elements. In this way his work is truly a guide to Sumerian in addition to being a thorough and compact dictionary. [...] the reader will find it a useful and informative addition to the bookshelf.'--John Engle "Review of Biblical Literature, 2008 ""
Halloran has managed to collect an impressive range of Sumerian words, and the brief definitions make sense for most of the texts one reads with students.'--M. J. Geller "Bulletin of the School of Oriental and African Studies, 2008 "
