The Cambridge Encyclopedia of the World's Ancient Languages

Editor
Roger D. Woodard, State University of New York, Buffalo

The Cambridge Encyclopedia of the World's Ancient Languages is the
first comprehensive reference work treating all of the languages of
antiquity. Clear and systematic in its approach, the Encyclopedia
combines full linguistic coverage of all the well-documented ancient
languages, representing numerous language families from around the
globe. Each chapter focuses on an individual language or, in some
instances, a set of closely related varieties of a language. Providing
a full descriptive presentation, each of these chapters examines the
writing system(s), phonology, morphology, syntax and lexicon of that
language, and places the language within its proper linguistic and
historical context. The Encyclopedia brings together an international
array of scholars, each a leading specialist in ancient language
study. While designed primarily for linguistic professionals and
students, this work is invaluable to all whose studies take them into
the realm of ancient language.

Roger D. Woodard is the Andrew V.V. Raymond Professor of Classics at
the State University of New York, Buffalo. He previously served on the
faculties of Classics and/or Linguistics at the University of Southern
California, Johns Hopkins University and Swarthmore College. Among his
other books are Greek Writing from Knossos to Homer: A Linguistic
Interpretation of the Origin of the Greek Alphabet (Oxford, 1997) and
co-author of Ovid's Fasti ( Penguin, 2000). He is a member of the
Linguistic Society of America and the American Philological
Association.
