A Linguistic History of Ancient Cyprus (Cambridge Classical by Philippa M. Steele PDF

By Philippa M. Steele

This pioneering quantity techniques the languages and scripts of historical Cyprus from an interdisciplinary viewpoint, with a essentially linguistic and epigraphic procedure supplemented via a attention in their ancient and cultural context. the focal point is on furthering our wisdom of the non-Greek languages/scripts, in addition to appreciating their position with regards to the far better understood Greek language at the island. Following on from fresh advances in Cypro-Minoan stories, those tricky, regularly overdue Bronze Age inscriptions are reassessed from first ideas. a similar method is taken for non-Greek languages written within the Cypriot Syllabic script through the first millennium BC, mainly the single frequently often called Eteocypriot. the ultimate part is then devoted to the Phoenician language, which was once in use on Cyprus for a few countless numbers of years. the result's a cautious reappraisal of those languages/scripts after greater than a century of occasionally debatable scholarship.
