Dissertation Abstract:

The main part of the book is a new systematic treatment of the historical
phonology of Balochi. Comparing important related languages (chiefly
Avestan, New Persian and Parthian), the book analyses the development of
Old Iranian sounds to the stage of Common Balochi and the changes leading
from that stage to the variants spoken today in Pakistan, Iran, Afghanistan
and some other countries. The diversity and intensity of contacts with
neighbouring languages are reflected in the Balochi lexicon of which
selected fields are presented and discussed.
