Book Information

   

Title: The Carian Language
Written By: I. J. Adiego
URL: http://www.brill.nl/default.aspx?partid=10&pid=24373
Series Title: Handbook of Oriental Studies. Section 1: The Near and Middle East
Description:

This handbook provides a complete and updated view of our current knowledge
about Carian, one of the Indo-European languages spoken in ancient
Anatolia. The decipherment of the Carian alphabet has only recently made it
possible to analyze Carian inscriptions and to classify the Carian language
linguistically.

The book covers all major topics of research on Carian: the direct and
indirect sources with an edition of the Carian inscriptions following a new
classification system, the history of the decipherment, the Carian
alphabet, and the phonological, morphological, lexical, and syntactic
features of the language. It includes an annotated Carian glossary.

The volume concludes with a special appendix on Carian coins and legends by
Koray Konuk that will be of particular interest to specialists in ancient
numismatics.
