This slightly revised edition of a doctoral dissertation is an exhaustive analysis, morphological as well as syntactical, of the moods in the Ugaritic verb system. The introduction describes the present state of the research, presents a short survey of the moods in the other Semitic languages and concludes with a paragraph on the method adopted in this monography. A rather short chapter deals with the morphology and offers as a conclusion quite practical paradigms. The author always presents a morphology that is orthographically and phonetically coherent. This way, he succeeds in demonstrating that in Ugaritic there is no «lax use of moods» (Gordon).
