Anatolian Historical Linguistics

Course
2015-2016

Admission requirements

The student must have taken the course ‘Hittite I’.

Description

The Anatolian language branch (to which, among others, Hittite, Palaic, Cuneiform-Luwian, Hierogrlyphic 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.
