[quopte]This book brings together new and original work by forty two of the world’s leading scholars of Indo-European comparative philology and linguistics from around the world. It shows the breadth and the continuing liveliness of enquiry in an area which over the last century and a half has opened many unique windows on the civilizations of the ancient world. The volume is a tribute to Anna Morpurgo Davies to mark her retirement as the Diebold Professor of Comparative Philology at the University of Oxford.
The book’s six parts are concerned with the early history of Indo-European (Part I); language use, variation, and change in ancient Greece and Anatolia (Parts II and III); the Indo-European languages of Western Europe, including Latin, Welsh, and Anglo-Saxon (Part IV); the ancient Indo-Iranian and Tocharian languages (Part V); and the history of Indo-European linguistics (Part VI).
Indo-European Perspectives will interest scholars and students of Indo-European philology, historical linguistics, classics, and the history of the ancient world.
“This exceptional collection is certainly a fitting tribute to a scholar who has undoubtedly touched the lives of many students and colleagues, on both a professional and personal level. Penney is to be congratulated for his superb editorial efforts.” –The Linguist List
“Indo-European Perspectives is a good introduction to current research in Indo-European studies and would be valuable reading for students beginning to do research…In sum, virtually anyone with an interest in IE linguistics will find something useful or exciting here.”–Bryn Mawr Classical Review[/quote]
