A #historical superpower many haven't heard about was #Lydia. The #Lydians lived in western #Asia minor and at their peak they possesed half the land of modern #Turkey. They had their own #alphabet, they invented the concept of #money and had an army so powerful that could destroy #Persia. If it was not for #Croesus (the richest man in the world at his time) and his megalomania, Lydia would potentially be one of the key players in the ancient world. He couldn't wait for his #Spartan allies and challenged #Cyrus of Persia alone. The Lydian language is part of the #Anatolian branch of the Indo-European #languages. On www.Palaeolexicon.com we have a Lydian #dictionary. You can browse it and learn how Lydians wrote their #language in their own alphabet (which is similar to Greek and Latin). Many of the words might feel familiar e.g. amu 'I, me', ama 'to love', śuũoś 'son', endo 'into', da 'to give' etc. .

This is my first book: A History of the Chinese Language (Routledge 2014). It’s almost four years since it was published in April 2014. #linguistics #historicallinguistics #chinese #chineselanguage #languagehistory #languagelearning

Attention linguists, Germanisten, and lovers of dictionaries:
I have just received a digital copy of the Grimm Brothers' Deutsches Wörterbuch, a 33-volume dictionary set detailing the etymologies and meanings of Standard High German words from the 15th century until the modern time. The first volume for the letter "A" was published in 1851, while the final volume was not completed until 1971.
I am so elated to own this.

It says IPA but the phonetic apodosis (lah-goo-KNEE-tuss) is far from the #IPA (international #phonetic alphabet) standard used by #linguists. Over 130 #languages are written using the #Latin #alphabet and many of the people speaking those languages cannot speak #English. English and in this case American English is a terrible way of representing how things should be pronounced. Therefore when you read about ancient people, it is very probable that you missread their anglicized form e.g. Celts are more correctly pronounced as Kelts not "selts", Thracians -> Thrakians etc.

Critical Period Hypothesis - Although much research has been done “proving” this critical age for learning a new language, Jan #Vanhove explores that it’s not a 100% rule. NEVER GIVE UP ON LEARNING A NEW LANGUAGE, REGARDLESS OF YOUR AGE :)

Had a blast in Stockholm over the last few days. It didn't snow unfortunately, hopefully when we get to Oslo there will be snow ❄️⛄Batman is some of the xray art on exhibit @fotografiska Such a cool idea. There are rune stones dating back to the 11th century vikings all over stockholm, this one was @skansen which is an open air museum/zoo showing the way of life in Sweden before industrialisation. Took a picture of the 16th century iron chest used to store crown jewels until 1732. Didn't realise there was no photography allowed in the Royal treasury so I got given out to 😂 Went to Sigtuna (Swedens oldest town) on our last day. The townhall is smallest in Sweden. It only has 2 rooms and it also acted as the town jail when it was built. Highly recommend visiting all these places if you're visiting Stocholm. The Royal treasury is small so I recommend getting the combo ticket for the whole royal Palace or getting the stockholm pass which gets you into the Palace aswell as the fotografiska and skansen museums. Sigtuna is outside of Stockholm but is worth the day trip of you have the time. #stockholm #sweden #ig_europe

Now available: the revised + expanded edition of “On the Road of the Winds: An #Archaeological History of the #PacificIslands before #EuropeanContact” by @ucberkeley Chancellor’s Professor of #Anthropology Patrick Vinton Kirch. •••
The Pacific Ocean covers one-third of the earth’s surface and encompasses many thousands of islands that are home to numerous human societies and cultures. Among these indigenous Oceanic cultures are the intrepid #Polynesian double-hulled canoe navigators, the atoll dwellers of #Micronesia, the statue carvers of remote #EasterIsland, and the famed traders of #Melanesia. Decades of archaeological excavations—combined with allied research in #historicallinguistics, #biologicalanthropology, and #comparativeethnography—have revealed much new information about the long-term history of these societies and cultures. | #LookItUp #ReadUP

The earliest traces of pure #wine made of grapes were found in early #neolithic pottery from South #Caucasus region, #Georgia. Those traces of tartaric acid, date back to ~6000 BCE. This region, including #Armenia and #Azerbaijan is crucial to the history of wine. The geography might also explain why the word for this popular drink is so similar across language families: PIE *wóinom, Proto-#Semitic *wayn, Proto-#Kartvelian *ɣwino, Proto-North-Caucasian *ʒ́w[ǝ̆]nʔi, #Etruscan vinum, #Hattic win.

Cheers!

My boyfriend @mrhappyjavaman is so sweet, he got me this gift for Christmas but gave it to my early because of my stress and busy-ness at finalizing my thesis. Sometimes I feel like I'm the only person in the world interested in this dead language #etruscan #etruscanlanguage #historicallinguistics #deadlanguage

Przygotowuje sobie przykłady na jutrzejsze zajęcia o staroangielskich czasownikach mocnych - temat jest ogólnie dość przyjemny i zazwyczaj nieźle wychodzi, bo wyjaśnia się magia kryjąca się za wspolczesnym drive-drove-driven czy meet-met-met. Z nazwiska zjawisko nazywa się ablaut, polega na wymianie samogłoski z rdzenia w celu zmiany formy (np. na przeszłą) i było bardzo regularne - stad zawsze trochę mi przykro, kiedy prawnuki tych czasowników nazywa się "nieregularnymi". Jak jakieś resortowe dzieci, niewinne przeciez temu, że to czasowniki słabe okazały się -nomen omen- mocniejsze, i to one, ze swoją lamerska, banalna końcówka -ed w czasie przeszlym, mają teraz przewagę liczebna i w związku z tym żółta koszulkę lidera regularnosci oraz puchar produktywności.
A niedługo przejmą media.
Ech.
Historia się chichra.

Ale ja nie o tym.

Zauważcie, Szanowni Państwo, że kiedy uczymy się języka nowożytnego, zaczynamy od banalow, a później wcale nie robi się dużo lepiej.
Tymczasem staroangielskiego uczymy się na zdaniach jak np. "Zabił ludzi: mężczyzn, kobiety i dzieci", czy "Grendel wziął (bez głupich skojarzeń: zabil) 30 odpoczywajacych sluzacych." O ileż bardziej stylowo, prawda? #mood Za każdym razem szczerze rozczula mnie urok tych zdań.

The Pyrgi Tablets are three gold leaf bilingual tablets. Two are in Etruscan and one in Phoenician. They were written 2500 years ago! They are now held at the Etruscan National Museum of Villa Giulia in Rome.
For centuries Etruscan was spoken mainly in Tuscanny, parts of Umbria and Lazio. In an ancient example of language colonisation, by 100 AD it had been replaced by Latin. #languages #languagesincontact #bilingual #bilingualsigns #etruscan #latin #historicallinguistics #linguistics

We've got a new article on www.palaeolexicon.com called "Anatolian cereals: A survey on Anatolian early farming" by G. Tardivo. Consider this as an addenda to "Prometheus or Amirani part 2" focused on farming vocabulary. The introduction of a new lifestyle, brings along the vocabulary used, which in this case is cereals, bread and cakes.
