This glossary is based upon the Aramaic inscriptions edited by the French Academie des Inscriptions et Belles-Lettres in the second part of the 'Corpus Inscriptionum Semiticarum' comprising some three hundred inscriptions from Assyria, Babylonia, Asia Minor, Egypt, and Palestine. To these have been added about seven hundred Sinaitic inscriptions collected and edited by Euting, and one hundred and fifty Palmyrene inscriptions published by the Comte de Vogue in La Syrie Centrale. In addition, Cook consulted various journals devoted to Semitic studies and added other numerous Palmyrene inscriptions.
