621Errata in PE 14
- Jan 22, 2004There are two points in the recently published (and very interesting)
Parma Eldalamberon #14 where I think that the text is misspelt.
In the note 1 of page 60 it is said that:
"row 3 (voiceless spirants) ==== CE class 3 initial (with _hw_ and _hw_
for _hu_ and _hi_, the latter emended to _si_)" [with diacritics of
semi-vocalic under _u_ and _i_].
I guess that it should be "with _hw_ and _hy_" instead.
[Yes, you are right, this is a typo. This passage should instead
read "with _hw_ and _hy_". -- PHW]
In page 64, under "(b) initial only" it is written:
"_s_ ... [_di_ ... _su_] ... _st_" [also with diacritics under _i_ and
I am not sure about this point, but the pattern of the other changes
under this epigraph suggests "_s_ ... [_si_ ... _su_] ... _st_"
[Right again! I have just checked my photocopy of the original
typescript, and the line in question should indeed read
"_s_ ... [_si_ ... _su_] ... _st_", with a subscript arch under
the vowels in _si_ and _su_. Thanks, Helios, for pointing out
these errata! -- PHW]
