This book is a treasure, unmatched in its linguistic, etymological and epistemological wealth and clarity. Below are examples on how the dictionary defines words, refers to the epistemological origin of the words, their derivation(s) and similar words with almost identical meaning and pronunciation in other languages and regional dialects in Semitic languages and dead languages of the ancient world (Middle East, Near East, Canaan, and Anatolia), and where words with an historical importance and linguistic value are found in the ancient tablets, on cylinder seals, slabs and bricks, the historical and social events surrounding those words, and who used them to make memorable statements.
A Definition's Example
The words Bab and Babylon and their relation to Babilu:
Bab: Ancient Assyrian/Babylonian. Noun. A gate.
From Bab, derived the words Babi and Babu.
(The plural is: Babani and Babati).
The word Bab was used in many Semitic and ancient Middle and Near Eastern languages.
Some civilizations incorporated the word Bab in their most important symbols and national entity's vocabularies, such as the word of Babylon, which means the gate of God.
Babylon is composed of two words:
a-Bab, which means a gate,
b-Ylon or Eli, or El, which means god.
"Zahi asbuut bab rab suunnuu ana izikipi uzakeep." From the Annals of Sardanapalus. Translated verbatim: "I crucified on crosses 700 men around their great gate "
King Esur (Assur, Ashur) said: "usa shira gimir babaani." Translated verbatim: "I put around all the gates."
And: "mihriit baabi sin." Translated verbatim: "In front of their gates." From the Annals of Sardanapalus: "Zaabi tilai in babaati sa ersu ana zikipi lu uzaakeepi." Translated verbatim: "I impaled on crosses alive men at the gates of his city."
And from the slabs of Sennacherib: "Mihriit babaati." Translated verbatim: "Before the gates."
