Sebastic Dictionary

Word of the Day: łamsu
n. sun ; sunlight
This dictionary is organized according to Modern Literary Sebastic, the standardized written form of Sebastic today. When the Classical Sebastic word is not immediately predictable, it is provided in the headword in parentheses. Likewise, if a word exists in Classical Sebastic but does not have an attested form in Modern Literary Sebastic, it will be listed as Classical Sebastic and followed by an asterisk. Colloquialisms and words unattested in literature will be followed by two asterisks.  Entries are organized alphabetically, but you can search tags by root.

Note on Etymology

Etymological entries will always be an ongoing project, and more information will be added over time. The information is incredibly useful, but can take an extraordinary amount of time to compile.

Meanwhile, I attempt to reconstruct a Proto-Semitic stem for every entry, except loanwords. However, some entries will have only one or two attestations, either because the stem is difficult to trace, or because I am simply in a hurry. In these cases, the reconstruction must be taken with a grain of salt; no stem can reasonably be reconstructed from such little evidence. The more attestations listed, the more trustworthy is the reconstruction. If a reconstruction is poorly attested, feel free to request that I research the reconstruction more fully.
