Summary: Historical Linguistics provides a clear and comprehensive introduction to historical linguistic theory and methods. Since first published in 1962 the book has established itself as core reading for students of linguistics.

Recent decades have seen remarkable advances in the field of linguistic theory: clarification of the history and development of writing; typological advances have allowed a better understanding of the structure of early languages; and arc moreheologists and scientists dealing with prehistoric periods have supplemented knowledge of the speakers of early languages, broadening the view of their culture and society. This third edition has been thoroughly revised by Lehmann to include these and other recent developments in linguistic and archeological research. Historical Linguistics presents basic research methods with illustrations of the application, taken largely from the Indo-European language family. Supplementary exercises utilize data fromother language families. less
