Re: [tied] Thracian -Satem
From: Piotr Gasiorowski
The publications of D. Dec^ev (also spelt
Dechev/Detschev) are still standard reference, esp. _Die thrakishen Sprachreste_
(Vienna, 1957). Vladimir Georgiev contributed significantly to the field, though
some of his work is so idiosyncratic (IMO) that only an
experienced linguist can tell the wheat from the chaff. Here's a
Ivan Duridanov's _The Language of the
Thracians_ (_Ezik&t na trakite_/_Die Sprache der Thraker_) is available in
an abridged online version:
Individual etymologies are discussed
in the rather irregularly appearing _Balkansko ezikoznanie_/_Linguistique
balkanique_, published in Sofia.
The satem character of Thracian is
supported by some solid etymologies like esb- 'horse' (< *ek^wo-) or diza
'fortress' (< *dig^H-ah2).
