The older runic inscriptions (c. AD150-450) represent the earliest attestation of any Germanic language. The close relationship of these inscriptions to the archaic Mediterranean writing traditions is demonstrated through the linguistic and orthographic analysis presented here. The importance of these inscriptions for a proper understanding of the prehistory and early history of modern Germanic languages, including English, becomes clear once the accumulation of unfounded claims of older mythological and cultic studies is cleared away.

Review:

"ANTONSENS Beiträge zur Runenforschung zeichnen sich nach eigener Einschätzung durch eine Methode linguistischer Rigorosität aus. Das macht ihre unzweifelbare Bedeutung aus. "Rigorism" lädt aber auch zu kritischer Diskussion ein."
Heinrich Beck in: Zeitschrift für Dialektologie und Linguistik 2/2006

Book Description De Gruyter, Germany, 2002. Hardback. Condition: New. Reprint 2011. Language: English. Brand new Book. The older runic inscriptions (ca. AD 150 - 450) represent the earliest attestation of any Germanic language. The close relationship of these inscriptions to the archaic Mediterranean writing traditions is demonstrated through the linguistic and orthographic analysis presented here. The extraordinary importance of these inscriptions for a proper understanding of the prehistory and early history of the present-day Germanic languages, including English, becomes abundantly clear once the accu-mulation of unfounded claims of older mythological and cultic studies is cleared away.
