Sulle convergenze tra semitico e indoeuropeo

Sergio Basso


From Keller 1891 through Lokotosch 1927 to Durand, Garbini 1994, historical linguistics has explored, although seldom, the convergences between the Semitic and Indo-European languages. In this context, in Italy we can place the controversial figure of Giovanni Semerano. A recent study concerning him triggers the opportunity of an assessment of his (lack of ) method and, more importantly, of the recent dialogue between Indo-European linguists and their Semitist colleagues.
