Title: Paleosardo
Subtitle: Le radici linguistiche della Sardegna neolitica
Edited By: Eduardo Blasco Ferrer
URL: http://www.degruyter.de/cont/fb/sk/detailEn.cfm?id=IS-9783110235593-1
Series Title: Beihefte zur Zeitschrift für romanische Philologie 361
Description:

For scholars, paleo-Sardinian still presents many unanswered questions.
This study illuminates for the first time the linguistic identity of the
original inhabitants of the island by means of a systematic and structured
analysis of field names in the archaic central area of Sardinia. Through a
thorough comparison of the identified place name structures with respective
lexicon entries of paleo-Basque and paleo-Iberian, the author can
substantiate his hypothesis of an immigration from the ancient Iberian
peninsula to Sardinia dating back to the Mesolithic period and the entire
Neolithic period.
