Message 1: Data on old Hermann Hirt article

Subject: Data on old Hermann Hirt article

Could someone please provide me with title, year, and pagination of an
article by Hermann Hirt which appeared in _Indogermanische
Forschungen_, vol. 17? I need this to order the item through
interlibrary loan.

The article included p. 281. The subject was apparently the Germanic
verba pura, specifically (perhaps), the claim that the proto-Germanic
form contained -j-.

Thanks in advance.

Subject: languages written in Greek alphabet variations

Hello,

Looking for names of languages written at one point in varieties of
the Greek alphabet (that is, they may contain unusual extra letters or
variant letterforms). So far I have: Greek, Coptic, Old Nubian, Arabic
(a little Byzantine Christian epigraphy).

Thank you!
