Anatolian Historical Grammar

Course
2021-2022

Admission requirements

The students must either have previously taken the course Hittite or take it in the same semester as Anatolian Historical Grammar.

Description

The Anatolian language branch (to which, among others, Hittite, Palaic, Cuneiform Luwian, Hieroglyphic Luwian, Lycian, Lydian and Carian belong) occupies a special place within the study of Indo-European, because it has retained many archaic characteristics.
In this course, we will extensively treat the linguistic analysis of Hittite and its affiliation to the other Anatolian languages (especially Cuneiform Luwian, Hieroglyphic Luwian and Lycian), as well as the meaning of Anatolian for the reconstruction of Proto-Indo-European.

Course objectives

At the end of this course, the student has knowledge of the most important aspects of the linguistic prehistory of Hittite and the other Anatolian languages, and is able to independently interpret and contextualise scholarly literature on this topic.
