Gábor Takács (Ed.): Semito-Hamitic Festschrift for A.B. Dolgopolsky and H. Jungraithmayr

Posted by useibert on Friday, August 8, 2008

In June 2008, a Festschrift for Professor Aharon B. Dolgopolsky (Haifa) and Professor Herrmann Jungraithmayr (Frankfurt am Main), edited by Gábor Takács (Budapest), has appeared as Vol. 24 of the publication series “Sprache und Oralität in Afrika” at Dietrich Reimer Verlag (Berlin).

Here is a description of the book found at the website of Reimer:

The volume is a collection of contributions by colleagues from Europe and North America to celebrate the 75th jubilee of two outstanding scholars in the domain of Semito-Hamitic (Afro-Asiatic) comparative linguistics. They are Professor Aharon B. Dolgopolsky (Haifa) and Professor Herrmann Jungraithmayr (Frankfurt am Main), who have so much in common in their approach to a better reconstruction of Semito-Hamitic, based on their exceptional analysis. The papers reflect the academic interests of both these scholars (with particular emphasis on Cushitic and Chadic linguistics, respectively) and present the problems of this vast linguistic family in all its variety. These studies by well-known specialists of Semitic, Berber, Cushitic and Omotic as well as Chadic linguistics are both comparative and descriptive in nature and focus primarily on the lexicon.
