Discovered only the the 19th century, the six Modern South Arabian languages of Yemen and Oman are among the least well known of all the Semitic languages. This lecture will include a description of some of the characteristic features of these languages, as well as samples of oral texts. Special attention will be given to how these languages relate to the rest of the Semitic family, and why they are important for comparative Semitic studies.
