Open Linguistics invites manuscripts for the Topical Issue ''Towards Branch-
Crossing Isoglosses in Indo-European''. By branch-crossing isoglosses we mean
those convergent isoglosses (phonetic, lexical or grammatical) that are shared
by some historically attested Indo-European languages regardless their
immediate genetic affiliation. Such isoglosses have been observed since the
proposal of the Wave Model by Johannes Schmidt. However, a systematic and
comprehensive approach to this phenomenon is still a desideratum.
The ultimate goal is to reconsider our knowledge of the history of the Indo-
European languages from the point of view of Contact Linguistics.
Papers on methodology and theoretical aspects of this problem, as well as
individual case studies are welcome.
