Title: Selected Comparative-Historical Afrasian Linguistic Studies in Memory of Igor M. Diakonoff
Edited By: M. Lionel Bender
Gábor Takács
David L. Appleyard
Description:

This volume contains overviews on Afrasian as a whole and its constituent families plus 23 articlesby internationally known contributors. In order to arrive at a focussed volume of high-quality papers, the editors chose to restrict the contents to what is arguably
Diakonoff's major field among the many in which he was a world-renowned scholar. Diakonoff was the greatest comparative historical Afrasianist during his long productive career spanning the
20th century. After a photograph of the dedicatee and a brief biography and bibliography of major publications of Diakonoff, written by Gabor Takacs, there follow the seven overviews and articles as follows (some titles abbreviated):
