For the first time, the vowels of Avestan are studied comprehensively
on the synchronic and diachronic level. All vowel changes which have
occurred after the Proto-Iranian stage are discussed, and they are
placed in a relative chronology. The phonological system of Avestan at
various stages of its development is reconstructed, and the
relationship between Old Avestan and Young Avestan is reviewed. Also,
many philological details are discussed. This volume is of interest
for Indo-Iranian philology, for Indo-European linguistics and for
Iranian linguistics.
