English summary: The study of the Hurrian-language is currently confronted with a rather unbalanced and still quite limited textual tradition. The reworking of names, which without a doubt represents the most extensive "corpus" of the language, is of the utmost importance. This volume is the first in a series in which collects and edits Hurrian names of all types from various places and times of transmission. Thomas Richter has undertaken with this first attempt to collect an extensive body of Hurrian personal names and to analyze this data from a linguistic point-of-view in light of the most recent scholarly findings. The starting point for this research is the recent scholarly findings regarding the morphology and grammar of Hurrian, taken as a whole, with the names viewed as a particular case. This study considers itself as chiefly a lexical work, which is at pains to expand the as-yet-only incompletely known Hurrian lexicon. In addition, the morphemic categories of the name and parts of the name, especially those parts of verbs in verbal compound-word names (Satznamen), are at the heart of this study. This book makes accessible various registers and indices.
