Los nombres en -u del griego. By F.-Javier MARTINEZ GARCIA.

ISBN 3-631-49546-3.

This study treats the Greek u-nouns from a philological and
comparative view. Since almost one century, this inflectional class
didnot have a monography exclusively dedicated, although it is a rest
of the most ancient Indo-European vocabulary.

There are two aspects, which have been specially addressed: the
inflection of u-nouns and the relations beetwen Greek u-stems with
those in other I-E languages from a morphological and lexical

The epic u-nouns have been studied because they hold valuable
information, which has been uniformed by virtue of morphological
processes. Not only Homeric Greek had been handled, but also the
pervivence of these nouns in Classical Greek, and sometimes the
discussion reaches the Byzantine period.

Contents: neuter u- nouns; animated (masculine and femenine) u-nouns;
remarks about accentuation and inflection of u-stems; the Greek
u-adjectives; conclusions: accent; inflection; semantics, derivation,
composition, reconstruction of non attested u-stems.
