List of Semiticists

The study of Semitic languages is known as Semitic studies, or Semitology. This is an academic discipline which focuses on the studies of Semitic languages, literatures, and histories, of Semitic-speaking peoples. One who studies this may be referred to as a Semiticist, or a Semitist. It includes Assyriology, Hebraist, and Syriacist studies. It also includes comparative studies of Semitic languages which focus on reconstructing Proto-Semitic.

As we can see, the study becomes serious around the end of the 1700s. Further significant strides were taken in the late 1800s and throughout the 1900s.
