Book Information


Title: Linguistica Tyrrhenica II
Written By: Fred C. Woudhuizen

In this second volume of Linguistica Tyrrhenica the relationship of Etruscan with the Indo-European languages of Asia Minor will be further explored. The first part deals with the second largest inscription in the Etruscan language, the Capua tile. The second part presents the new insights from the Capua tile and a few minor texts in the same concise and systematic order as developed for the first volume of this series. Hence, it likewise consists of a dictionary part with extensive explications per item and sections on orthography, phonology, morphology and grammar exemplified by selected texts in translation. This volume further contains appendices on the Pyrgi texts, toponyms and personal names of Anatolian background, and Indo-European aspects.
