Table of Contents
“Unlike many conferences and publications that focus on historical linguistics, this book is not saturated with topics that are specifically Indo-European. Only half the articles deal with some aspect of the IE family, and many of these do so with a much broader issue in mind.”
“A particularly strong aspect of the book is the broad range of languages discussed, especially in the light of the overemphasis that is sometimes placed on Indo-European in historical linguistics.”
“This book has something to offer every linguist who is interested in the diachronic aspects of language.”
