Linguistica Tyrrhenica II
Fred C. Woudhuizen
In this second volume of Linguistica Tyrrhenica the relationship of
Etruscan with the Indo-European languages of Asia Minor will be further
explored. The first part deals with the second largest inscription in the
Etruscan language, the Capua tile. The second part presents the new
insights from the Capua tile and a few minor texts in the same concise and
systematic order as developed for the first volume of this series. Hence,
it likewise consists of a dictionary part with extensive explications per
item and sections on orthography, phonology, morphology and grammar
exemplified by selected texts in translation. This volume further contains
appendices on the Pyrgi texts, toponyms and personal names of Anatolian
background, and Indo-European aspects.
