Sample text

The language was rediscovered only in the nineteenth century, when the cuneiform writing was (gradually) deciphered. The Assyrian dialect was discovered first, and this gave rise to the misleading term ‘Assyriology’ for the study of Akkadian in general. Today, hundreds of thousands of Akkadian texts are known. These encompass many different genres, including poetry (such as the epic of Gilgamesh), religious compositions, royal and monumental inscriptions, histories, monolingual and multilingual dictionaries (word-lists), grammatical texts, astronomical and mathematical texts, legal documents (most famously the Code of Hammurabi), private and diplomatic correspondence, and an endless quantity of economic and administrative documents.

Part II describes structural changes, whereas Part III describes functional replacement. In Part II we shall see that finite complements did not develop from any paratactic structures, but rather from other subordinate structures (adverbial clauses). On the other hand, Part III will demonstrate that during the history of Babylonian, the use of subordinate complements was extended at the expense of paratactic structures (amongst others). Thus, although parataxis was not the structural source of finite complements, finite complements nevertheless took over some functions which parataxis performed in earlier periods.

The attempts to capture both the semantic notion of dependence and the hierarchical notion of embedding, especially in a cross-linguistic perspective, have resulted in a variety of sometimes conflicting definitions. Some authors use the terms ‘hypotaxis’ and ‘subordination’ for distinct phenomena (C. Lehmann 1988, Matthiessen and Thompson 1988, Cristofaro 1998b), but each draws the distinction along different lines. In this study, I shall avoid the term ‘hypotaxis’ altogether. The term ‘subordination’ will be used in the traditional, purely hierarchical sense, as a synonym for ‘embedding’.
