A new edition of the IE Newsletter has just appeared.
In "Notes & Brief Communications": - We mark the passing of Oswald Szemerenyi with a short piece by Alfred Bammesberger; - Konstantin Woebking (Universitaet Innsbruck) summarizes the September Indogermanische Gesellschaft meeting; - Alfred Bammesberger provides a brief review of Helmut Birkhan's new book, Kelten: Versuch einer Gesamtdarstellung; - Henning Andersen has written a synopsis of his latest work, Reconstructing Prehistorical Dialects: Initial vowels in Slavic and Baltic.
The essays contained in this issue focus on ancient Greece and adjacent areas: - Ivo Hajnal (Indogermanisches Seminar der Universitaet Zuerich) writes an update on Mycenaean language and texts - Andreas Schachner (Vorgeschichtliches Seminar der Philipps- Universitaet, Marburg) reviews recent research in the archaeology of western Anatolia, which has ramifications for the prehistory of Greece - Mark Hall (Archaeological Research Facility, UC Berkeley) discusses advances in radiocarbon dating and suggests what this new work may mean for dating prehistoric Greece.
In "Report from the Field", Igor Manzura and Mark Tkachuk write on their Moldovan excavation that may represent a significant new Sarmatian site.
The Newsletter includes listings of new books, an update on electronic resources for IE, a list of upcoming conferences, as well as IE books available for review in the journals Word and Language.
