Chapter Summary

This chapter traverses the entire history of the Greek language, from its Proto-Indo-European roots to the modern vernacular, for these observations of possible metanalyses owing to movable and final sigma throughout the history of the Greek language offer a reassuring posterior support for the fundamental assumption of this work: that metanalysis at word boundaries was a productive force in the creation of new forms and words in the pre-Homeric Kunstsprache. The empirical evidence from various periods is especially welcome in this case because the proposed Homeric metanalyses are somewhat less convincing than those determined. The reader of this book is referred to back to the chapter later for analogical support when the sources of some Greek toponyms and as well as of Homeric lie in metanalysis owing to movable and final sigma.

Keywords: Greek language; homeric; junctural metanalysis; sigma; toponyms
