The Comprehensive Aramaic Lexicon (CAL) Project

CAL

The Comprehensive Aramaic Lexicon (CAL)

is a text base of the Aramaic texts in all dialects from the earliest (9th Century BCE) through the 13th Century CE, currently with a database of approximately 2.5 million lexically parsed words, and an associated set of electronic tools for analyzing and manipulating the data, whose ultimate goal is the creation of a complete lexicon of the language. IT IS A WORK IN PROGRESS, not a completed dictionary.

The site’s CAL Lexicon Browser allows users to search the database by the initial consonantal letters of a word, which provides a list of possible words. From this users may generate a KWIK, which provides a list of every use of the word in its literary context.
