Kari Liukkonen, Baltisches im Finnischen. M�moires de la Soci�t�
Finno-Ougrienne 235. Helsinki 1999. 178 p. (ISBN 952-5150-32-1)

In his new book, Kari Liukkonen, Docent of Slavonic and Baltic languages
(University of Helsinki), emphasizes the role of Baltic contacts in the
history of the Finnic languages and the (often neglected) importance of
Baltic studies to Fennistics. The book consists of 100 entries, presenting
new or reconsidered Baltic etymologies for 156 Finnish words.

Jorma Koivulehto, Verba mutuata. Quae vestigia antiquissimi cum Germanis
aliisque Indo-Europaeis contactus in linguis Fennicis
reliquerint. M�moires de la Soci�t� Finno-Ougrienne 237. Helsinki
1999. 435 p. (ISBN 952-5150-36-4)

The Festschrift for Professor Jorma Koivulehto on the occasion of his 65th
birthday consists of previously published papers, with introductions and
additional remarks. The book presents many of the Indo-European
etymologies by Koivulehto and their theoretical implications: studies that
have profoundly changed many views on Finnic prehistory.
