"The honoree of this Festschrift has for many years now marked modern trends in diachronic and synchronic linguistics by his own publications and by stimulating those of numerous others. This collection of articles presents data-oriented studies that integrate modern and traditional approaches in the field, thus reflecting the honoree's contribution to contemporary linguistics. The articles relate to comparative data from (early) Indo-European languages and a variety of other languages and discuss the theoretical implications of phenomena such as linguistic universals, reconstruction, and language classification."

Industry Reviews

"There is every sign that this Festschrift will also be referred to in twenty years time, not only for the articles on Indo-European by well-known Indo-Eurpeanistst, but also for some of the other topics covered here, which range from (im)politeness in Moliere through witch reference in American Indian languages to Tibeto-Burman. The range and acuity of the contributions is an appropriate tribute to the work of the honorand."James Clackson in: Kratylos, 50, 2005
