"I am writing to confirm that Mr. Joshua N. Wiley is authorized (and very
welcome) to register for my class NELC 635.01 (call #112943)."
I'm so very excited. I've registered for both Akkadian grammar I and Arabic grammar I for next quarter. This is like a dream come true. If the Spring quarter schedule works out too, I'll graduate with a J.D. (which I don't really want) and a healthy (redeeming?) background in Semitic languages. Lord willing, 30 quarter credit-hours of Arabic and 10 of Akkadian. This should give me a strong background for Hebrew at some point in the future. And then there are always mesopotamian texts. :)
