The aim of this paper is to render a detailed picture of the early formation of English fricatives from the Indo-European period till the threshold of Middle English with emphasis on the Germanic period. After presenting different theories of the Indo-European consonantal inventory, I discuss the two famous Germanic sound laws: Grimm s Law and Verner s Law. These sound changes have been debated for a long time, and their acceptance among scholars is not uniform at all. Following the chronological line of my discussion, the next step is a presentation of the fricative system of Proto-Germanic. To reconstruct the Proto-Germanic consonantal inventory, it is necessary to examine its dialects as well. I examine Gothic closely from this point of view, as I had the opportunity to study it in the course of my university studies. Thereafter I continue my discussion with the Old English fricative-system. The second part of my thesis is devoted to a central topic strongly debated among historical linguists: the status of voice. My aim is to reconsider the standpoint generally accepted with the help of Karl Luick s theorem, which has been ignored for a long time.
A faithful account of a businessman´s simple three-hour bus trip from a mountainside above the city to the far shimmering towers of Las Vegas. He had not been able to call a taxi; the bus seemed a good idea. This story is true-every incident being described as faithfully as one could render it. Detailed notes were made later on the evening of the journey (1) after relating the details to a group of friends shortly after I arrived at the Paris and (2) after re-telling the whole story to an expanded group of associates over dinner at the Bellagio that same day. 1.

From New York to Europe, the apartments of the nouveau riche to ancient French estates, Edith Wharton tells the story of Undine Spragg, a girl from a Midwestern town with unquenchable social aspirations. Though Undine is narcissistic, pampered, and incredibly selfish, she is a beguiling heroine whose marital initiation into New York high society from its trade-wealthy fringes is only the beginning of her relentless ambitions. Wharton weaves an elaborate plot that renders a detailed depiction of upper-class social behavior in the early 20th century. By using a character with inexorable greed in a novel of manners, she demonstrates some of the customs of a modern age and posits a surprising explanation for divorce and the social role of women, which still resonates for the modern audience today. 1.

With the bravura storytelling and pungent authenticity of detail she brought to her acclaimed Lymond Chronicles, Dorothy Dunnett, grande dame of the historical novel, presents The House of Niccolò series. The time is the 15th century, when intrepid merchants became the new knighthood of Europe. Among them, none is bolder or more cunning than Nicholas vander Poele of Bruges, the good-natured dyer´s apprentice who schemes and swashbuckles his way to the helm of a mercantile empire. The year is 1471. Within the circus of statecraft, where the lions of Burgundy, Cyprus, England, and Venice stalk and snarl, Nicholas wields a valued whip. Having wrested his little son Jordan from his estranged wife, Gelis, he embarks on the greatest business scheme of his life-- beginning with a journey to Iceland. But while Nicholas confronts merchant knights, polar bears, and the frozen volcanic wastelands of the North, a greater challenge awaits: the vengeful Gelis, whose secrets threaten to topple all Nicholas has achieved. Here is Dorothy Dunnett at her best. Robustly paced, prodigiously detailed, To Lie with Lions renders the quicksands of Renaissance politics as well as the turnings of the human soul, from love to hate and back.
The royal mummies in the Cairo Museum are an important source of information about the lives of the ancient Egyptians. The remains of these pharaohs and queens can inform us about their age at death and medical conditions from which they may have suffered, as well as the mummification process and objects placed within the wrappings. Using the latest technology, including Multi-Detector Computed Tomography and DNA analysis, co-authors Zahi Hawass and Sahar Saleem present the results of the examination of royal mummies of the Eighteenth to Twentieth Dynasties. New imaging techniques not only reveal a wealth of information about each mummy, but render amazingly lifelike and detailed images of the remains. In addition, utilizing 3D images, the anatomy of each face has been discerned for a more accurate interpretation of a mummy´s facial features. This latest research has uncovered some surprising results about the genealogy of, and familial relationships between, these ancient individuals, as well as some unexpected medical finds. Historical information is provided to place the royal mummies in context, and the book with its many illustrations will appeal to Egyptologists, paleopathologists, and non-specialists alike, as the authors seek to uncover the secrets of these most fascinating members of the New Kingdom royal families.
