Abstract:

This latest dictionary in the Leiden Indo-European Etymological Dictionary
Series systematically and exhaustively deals with the Slavic inherited
lexicon. It is unique in combining recent insights from the field of
comparative Indo-European linguistics with modern Balto-Slavic accentology.
In addition, the author makes an explicit attempt at reconstructing part of
the Balto-Slavic lexicon.

The lemmata of the dictionary are alphabetically arranged Proto-Slavic
etyma. Each lemma consists of a number of fields which contain the
evidence, reconstructions and notes. The introduction explains the contents
and the significance of the individual fields. Here the reader can also
find information on the various sources of the material. The volume
concludes with an extensive bibilography of sources and secondary
literature, and a word index.

Readership:
Indo-Europeanists as well as anyone interested in Slavic historical
linguistics or etymological studies in general.

Book URL: http://www.brill.nl/default.aspx?partid=10&pid=24851

Hardback: ISBN: 9789004160927 Pages: 1150 Price: Europe EURO 199.00

Abstract:

Hittite is the oldest attested Indo-European language and therefore of
paramount importance for comparative Indo-European linguistics. Although in
the last few decades our knowledge of the synchronic and historical
linguistics of Hittite has profoundly increased, these new insights have
not been systematically applied to the whole Hittite material. This book
fills this gap by, for the first time, providing an etymological dictionary
of the entire Hittite lexicon of Indo-European origin in which all words
are treated in a coherent way. Furthermore, it provides a thorough
description of the synchronic phonological system of Hittite as well as a
comprehensive study of the Hittite historical morphology and phonology. The
result is a monumental handbook that will form an indispensable tool for
Indo-Europeanists and Hittitologists alike.

Readerschip:

Indo-Europeanists, Hittitologists, Assyriologists, and all those interested
in historical linguistics.

Praises for the Etymological Dictionary of the Hittite Inherited
Lexicon
:

"The first and only etymological dictionary of Hittite that represents an
informed, comprehensive, and internally coherent approach to Hittite
historical grammar with many new original contributions."
-Prof. dr. Craig Melchert, A. Richard Diebold Professor of Indo-European
Studies, UCLA, USA

"Alwin Kloekhorst's book is the product of a brilliant mind. I consider it
the most important work on Hittite linguistics since nearly two decades."
-Prof. dr. Norbert Oettinger, Professor of Comparative Indo-European
Linguistics, University of Erlangen, Germany
