Abstract:

This book presents an exhaustive treatment of a long-standing problem
of Proto-Indo-European and Italic philology, the development of the
Proto-Indo-European voiced aspirates in the ancient languages of
Italy. In so doing, it tackles a central issue of historical
linguistics, the plausibility of explanations for sound change. The
book argues that a solution to the problem can only be offered by
combining the results of a traditional philological investigation with
the resources of a neighbouring discipline, experimental phonetics. It
will be of interest to scholars and advanced students of historical
and comparative linguistics, the languages of ancient Italy, and
Indo-European, as well as phoneticians and phonologists.
