E-mail this message to a friend

Author under contract to write popular nonfiction book regarding oak wood,
trees, and forests seeks interviews with linguists having expertise in
Indo-European languages. Briefly put, I am seeking to understand the evolution
of the words 'oak', 'tree', 'truth', 'door' and their cognates with as much
cultural context as possible.

Any help will be very much appreciated and duly acknowledged.
