Chapter Summary

This chapter provides concluding remarks for this book on a survey of Hieroglyphic Luwian (HLuwian) noun phrases (NPs). It investigates the interplay of morphology and syntax within these phrases. In the domain of morphology, HLuwian has been revealed to be less homogeneous throughout the centuries of its attestation than previously thought. This becomes most evident with the different means employed to encode nominal and pronominal possessors, or in a broader sense, relational terms. The changes observed in possessive marking are first and foremost morphological in nature, but their effects manifest themselves most plainly on morphosyntactic and syntactic levels. The constituents of HLuwian NPs are flexible to different degrees with respect to word order. In addition to the morphosyntactic changes discussed so far, the analyses have brought to light a few changes in the lexicon of HLuwian as collateral findings.

Keywords: Hieroglyphic Luwian (HLuwian) noun phrases (NPs); morphosyntactic changes; nominal possessors; pronominal possessors
