The Reflexes of Syllabic Liquids in Ancient Greek
Linguistic Prehistory of the Greek Dialects and Homeric Kunstsprache
Reflexes of syllabic liquids play an important yet controversial role in Greek dialect classification and the analysis of Homeric formulas. This book tackles the entire evidence afresh and elaborates a ground-breaking new scenario of language change in the epic tradition.; Readership: The book is a must-have for academic libraries and specialists/researchers in Indo-European Linguistics, Homeric studies (and hence Classics more generally), Mycenology, and Ancient Greek dialectology.
