About this item

Puhvel says that S is the bulkiest and peskiest initial in the Hittite inventory, and this volume covers about half of its total, leaving the rest for the next volume. This is not just a dictionary, he says, but a treatise on etymology guided in equal measure by philological and linguistic criteria. He occasionally modifies the rigid alphabetization of entries, and when descriptive complexities dictate, puts obvious cognates in separate entries, but pools them under generic headings when descriptive simplicities allow.
