The Textbook of Aramaic Documents from Ancient Egypt by Bezalel Porten and Ada Yardeni, 4 volumes, Jerusalem, 1986-1999

The TAD-T module represents the main Aramaic text, grammatically tagged initially for the CAL Project. The accompanying TAD-E module includes the English translation, as well as headings, explanations, and footnotes in the printed text. The Yardeni drawings are not included.

TAD includes a large collection of Aramaic documents from the 5th century BCE, mainly from Elephantine Island in the Nile near Aswan, which offer a fascinating glimpse into the life of a Jewish garrison community. The letters and legal papers give a vivid picture of the life of Jews in exile during the time of Ezra and Nehemiah, and are of major importance to scholars of the period.

The TAD-T module allows full morphological searches of the Aramaic text. The TAD-E Reference tool includes the English translations and all the Notes, and can be displayed in parallel or searched independently.
