Subject: Development of Afro-asiatic Comparative-Historical Linguistics in Russia

Tak�cs, G�bor

This study gives the first science history and a detailed and extensive
scientific appraisal of the works by the Russian school (or "Moscow
school") of Afro-Asiatic (Semito-Hamitic) comparative-historical
linguistics in the past three decades.
	The book contains the following parts: 1. A general overview of roots
of Afro-Asiatic linguistics in Russia before 1965. 2. A concise survey
of development of Afro-Asiatic studies from 1965 in Russia. 3. A most
detailed presentation and critical appraisal of works by the Russian
comparativists on the reconstruction of Afro-Asiatic comparative
phonology and lexicon in the light of research results of other
("Western") scholars (incl. my own observations). 4. A concise
description of the so-called "Nostratic theory" and introduction of the
"Moscow school of comparative linguistics" in the latest three decades.
5. The work ends with a comprehensive bibliography of all cited works.
This is at the same time the first bibliography that includes all
Russian works on Afro-Asiatic linguistics from 1965.
