Edited By: Eduardo Blasco Ferrer

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.
