Chapter Summary

This chapter presents the general vocabulary that arises from an analysis of the inscriptions, and provides further details about these forms and about others, which are interpreted more hypothetically. The area that yields the greatest volume of information is Carian onomastics: the sources, both direct and indirect, provide a large number of proper names, currently the most valuable information on Carian available. Comparison of Carian proper names with the rest of Anatolian onomastics therefore not only provides a greater capacity for combinatorial analysis, but also allows to establish the meaning of many lexical and functional elements that intervene in their construction. The chapter offers examples of this latter approach by collecting several lexical elements of Anatolian origin that can be identified in the Carian name system, and which generally also appear in the known inventories of proper names from the rest of Asia Minor.

Keywords: Anatolian onomastics; Carian inscriptions; Carian onomastics; Carian proper names; general vocabulary
