The Chicago Assyrian Dictionary (CAD) or The Assyrian Dictionary of the Oriental Institute of the University of Chicago is a nine-decade project at the University of Chicago's Oriental Institute to compile a dictionary of the Akkadian language and its dialects. Modeled on the Oxford English Dictionary, work on the project was initiated in 1921 by James Henry Breasted, the founder of the Oriental Institute, who had previously worked on the Berlin dictionary of Ancient Egyptian. From 1973 to 1996, Erica Reiner was editor in charge, followed by Martha T. Roth, dean of humanities. Expected to take 10 years to complete, the first volume was not published until 1956, and the 26th and final volume was not published until 2011.
