Development of Afro-Asiatic (Semito-Hamitic)
Comparative-Historical Linguistics in Russia and the Former Soviet
Union

G�bor Tak�cs 

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.
