The festschrift Na-wa/i-VIR.ZI/A MAGNUS.SCRIBA to honor Helmut Nowicki, a Hittite scholar and linguist contains twenty-two chiefly German language articles by colleagues and friends from the field of ancient Near East studies, comparative Indo-Germanic language studies, and related disciplines. While the chief focus of this volume is on Anatolian and linguistic themes, the diversity of the articles is apparent, covering subjects from material culture to the history of science to specific philological problems in a half dozen languages, all of which are research interests of the scholar that this volume honors. The subject matter discussed includes, among others, the content and meaning of Hapax Legomena and rarely attested words and names, discourse analysis, the phenomena of word order, textual reconstructions, derivation, and synchronous clauses in grammatical categories, glyptic, stylistic research and archaeology, which makes the festschrift an especially rich study of the ancient world.
