Chapter Summary

This front matter section of the book Pre-Greek contains the table of contents, preface and a list of abbreviations. The book discusses that the substrate language of Greek will be called 'Pre-Greek'; this is a translation of the German term 'das Vorgriechische'. No written texts exist in this language, but it is known from a considerable number of loanwords in Greek. The study of Pre-Greek has had an unfortunate history. In the past century, it was called 'Pelasgian' and considered a dialect of Indo-European.

Keywords: das Vorgriechische; Pelasgian; Pre-Greek
