Do you want to get an idea of 100s of years before Sibawayh? Read ! 4 those who can't join me in class, I share this teaching document with a selection of Safaitic texts, fully glossed, normalized, and translated.
This open-access teaching/reference document presents a small selection of Safaitic inscriptions fully glossed with reconstructed vocalizations and translations.

I was checking on the demonstrative in Safaitic. Did I see correctly that the 3 examples in your article are represented with "h"? (this camel, this writing)

Both the h- and ‘(l) articles have a demonstrative force. You can find the h- demonstrative prefix in modern Arabic as well as a marginal feature in pre-Classical Arabic.

Time historians pay attention to this as well. But am I missing dating for translated examples...

Sorry I’m bit thick so please can you explain me- are you saying that this there was some form of written/spoken Arabic before say 600 AD? Your work is bit complicated for me can you place explain in laymen terms? This is all so fascinating!
