Abstract:
			
This book presents the theory that the linguistic and cultural
landscape of Europe north of the Alps and the Pyrenees was shaped in
prehistoric times by the interaction of Indo-European speakers with
speakers of languages related to Basque and to Semitic. These
influences on the lexicon, grammar, and toponymy of the West
Indo-European languages (with special focus on Germanic) are
demonstrated in German and English research papers, provided here with
summaries, commentaries, and a new introduction in English, and with
general and etymological indexes.
