Abstract:

This is a sequel to the author's Semitic and Indo-European: The
Principal Etymologies (1995). That volume provided the key examples of
morphological correspondences between the Semitic and the
Indo-European languages. In this sequel, the author analyzes
correspondences of structure, either within a certain group of
languages or belonging to a distantly related group, by looking at
inflectional morphology, case, grammar, and phonology. Thus are
uncovered the prehistoric means of oral communication, linking the
forerunners of ancient societies in Asia, Africa, and Europe, as they
talked about livestock or revealed some inner sentiment.
