Not sure if this was mentioned here recently? The Assyrian Dictionary of the Oriental Institute of the University of Chicago. There is just one copy left on Amazon.com

http://bit.ly/6WD3Mm

But it is a little expensive at $105.

The Chicago Assyrian Dictionary was conceived to provide more than lexical information alone, more than a one-to-one equivalent between Akkadian and English words. By presenting each word in a meaningful context, usually with a full and idiomatic translation, it recreates the cultural milieu and thus in many ways assumes the function of an encyclopedia. Its source material ranges in time from the third millennium BC to the first century AD, and in geographic area from the Mediterranean Sea in the west to the Zagros Mountains in the east. The Chicago Assyrian Dictionary has become an invaluable source for the study of the civilisations of the ancient Near East, their political and cultural history, their achievements in the sciences of medicine, astronomy, mathematics, and linguistics, and not least the timeless beauty of their poetry.





Anyone has this?

Actually there are some used copies too, starting from $94, so I don't have to buy the new copy.

It says it's only for the letter Teth (confirmed by the letter T with the dot underneath it on the cover, which is how they show that letter in standard phonetic transcription) and has "v.19" (volume 19) written on it. Kind of makes you wonder how expensive the entire set would be...

Anyway, ash, do you really want to learn Akkadian that badly? :)
