This book offers an account of the role of gemination as a grammatical and lexical feature of Akkadian and a comprehensive treatment of the nominal and verbal categories that are characterized by it. Kouwenberg argues that gemination is basically an iconic phenomenon: its presence correlates with an extension in meaning of the word vis-a-vis that of the corresponding word without gemination. Particular attention is paid to the D-stem, which is discussed exhaustively here for the first time (with implications for Semitic in general).
