I have Jastrow, but was wondering what recommendations might you give me for Lexicons related to the Targum of Isaiah and other prophetic books.

I like also the CAL Lexicon for its quick source mappings.

But more importantly the targums are inherently religious, so comparitive use is important, especially as regards early vs later aramaic (searches). Then, Aramaic Bible for notes. Plus, (not advertising; Logos doesn't offer), I use the word maps in A-Company for interlinear comparitives.

I own CAL, but CAL, despite its name, contains text but no lexicon, right?

Try a right click to see the lexical/morphological information.

Orthodox Bishop Hilarion Alfeyev: "To be a theologian means to have experience of a personal encounter with God through prayer and worship."

I am not an expert in Aramaic studies but was intrigued to check and this is what I figured out:.

With the right-click and going to the Bible word study it provides many entries in the list (based on my library).

TgLex is the actual lexicon in CAL (https://www.logos.com/product/25515/targum-lexicon, although CAL denotes to https://www.logos.com/product/7862/the-targums-from-the-files-of-the-comprehensive-aramaic-lexicon-project ).

DTTBYML points to Jastrow. It provides something different ...

Well, I copied a picture to my reply above, but it is not visible. I try to put the file in the old way

I'm not sure if the CAL Lexicon came with the CAL text. As above 'Targum Lexicon'. Below, a camera image (Logos offline). I got mine in the old Libronix OL Package. It's nice in quickly showing cognate relations.

Altogether, I have 4 aramaic lexicons; the other 2: HALOT-Aramaic and DBL-Aramaic.

Veli, I think this new forum software siting is a bit unglued. The image above (if you can see it!) shows in my ios Safari, but not in my ios browser (which has to use Safari management).

Touch and go. Cars song.

While I was not finding this in my iOS, perhaps I should try again, I did it find it in my PC. Thanks so much.

Thanks to all of you for your many suggestions. I look forward to trying these different suggestions. And by the way, I finally found the Lexicon of CAL in my PC this afternoon. Many, many thanks to all of you one more time.
