This is pretty amazing. (http://oi.uchicago.edu/research/projects/cad/) A complete A-Z dictionary of the Assyrian language. I had no idea such a thing was even going on. Turns out it was 90 years in the making. (http://hotword.dictionary.com/assyrian/?__utma=1.1833588681.1307773971.1307873595.1307913 257.8&__utmb=1.1.10.1307913257&__utmc=1&__utmx=-&__utmz=1.1307773971.1.1.utmcsr=%28direct%29%7Cutmc cn=%28direct%29%7Cutmcmd=%28none%29&__utmv=-&__utmk=32937790)

Here is a list of the volumes. (http://oi.uchicago.edu/research/pubs/catalog/cad/) Warning, huge .pdf files.

This is pure language geek bliss.

Yeah I need to set aside the time necessary to start downloading and corralling because oh my freaking deities and stocking-suspension devices.

Might want to check out this (http://psd.museum.upenn.edu/epsd/index.html) as well. Probably not as extensive, but still cool.
