Descripción

Language: English . Brand New Book. The aim of this paper is to render a detailed picture of the early formation of English fricatives from the Indo-European period till the threshold of Middle English with emphasis on the Germanic period. After presenting different theories of the Indo-European consonantal inventory, I discuss the two famous Germanic sound laws: Grimm?s Law and Verner?s Law. These sound changes have been debated for a long time, and their acceptance among scholars is not uniform at all. Following the chronological line of my discussion, the next step is a presentation of the fricative system of Proto-Germanic. To reconstruct the Proto-Germanic consonantal inventory, it is necessary to examine its dialects as well. I examine Gothic closely from this point of view, as I had the opportunity to study it in the course of my university studies. Thereafter I continue my discussion with the Old English fricative-system. The second part of my thesis is devoted to a central topic strongly debated among historical linguists: the status of voice. My aim is to reconsider the standpoint generally accepted with the help of Karl Luick?s theorem, which has been ignored for a long time. N° de ref. de la librería KNV9783639142938
