Selected Comparative-Historical Afrasian Linguistic

in Memory of Igor M. Diakonoff

M. Lionel Bender, Gabor Takacs & David L. Appleyard (eds.)

This volume contains overviews on Afrasian as a whole and its constituent families plus 23 articles
by internationally known contributors. In order to arrive at a focussed volume of high-quality
papers, the editors chose to restrict the contents to what is arguably Diakonoff's major field among
the many in which he was a world-renowned scholar. Diakonoff was the greatest comparativehistorical
Afrasianist during his long productive career spanning the 20th century. After a photograph of the dedicatee and a brief biography and bibliography of major publications of Diakonoff, written by Gabor Takacs, there follow
the seven overviews and articles as follows (some titles abbreviated):
