Lesson Three: Phonetics

By phonetics I mean that natural development of a language which is evident in the evolution of nouns, verbs and the other parts of speech. The development of the Ugaritic language is, however, a subject more suited to an advanced study and not the study of basic grammar. The subject is merely broached here so that the student knows from the very beginning that Ugaritic underwent the same kind of changes common in every language.
