Thanks. I have access to both University Library of Amsterdam aswell as
Uppsala University. They do have loads of related books, but I was
looking more for advice in the form of which titles and exactly
what they cover. Would be most interested in books on reconstruction
of those language families, like Beekes' on IE or Trask's on Basque.
Also if someone knows of books dealing with Proto-Semitic that will
do instead of AA.
