A Comparative Grammar of the Semitic Languages

Written before the discovery of Ugaritic, but a good summary nonetheless.

Does anybody have a link to Lehmann's A Grammar of Proto-Germanic? It seems to have been either moved from its old location at http://www.utexas.edu/cola/centers/lrc/books/pgmc00.html or deleted altogether. I can't find any of the other historical linguistics books that used to be available on UT Austin's website either, although the lessons on old European languages like Latin are still up there.

Careful with this one- Hewson's tastes run towards the abstract, so he often reconstructs underlying forms that aren't actually attested anywhere, and sometimes he gets things wrong. I know this because I took him at face value before my conference paper this past weekend and now have some things to reconfigure. Pentland's been promising a comparative dictionary and grammar à la Brugmann for years, but a) it gets delayed every time a new dictionary comes out, and b) his dictionary files are so old he's had his laptop reconfigured to run DOS so he can work on them. It's not a bad starting point, but it's difficult to figure out where it's right and where to depart from it without an extensive knowledge of the field.

Good to know, thanks.

General question about resources here: does anyone know what happened with the massive grammar/textbook/language-material-related download website 'language.ws'? There's an old notice saying it's going up for sale, and it now seems to be inhabited only by aggressive adware that scares the crap out of all my antivirus software.

On a related grammar-trove note, are people still using and/or updating the big 'GRAMMAR PILE' torrent that was released (IIRC) last year?

I'm just not online a lot, and think I miss a lot of stuff that's going on.

You can still log in and download things but there doesn't seem to be much new up.

Update:

I haven't looked at how well-seeded the torrent file is in months, but in case anyone doesn't want to deal with torrents, Grammar Pile 3.0 is on Google Drive: https://drive.google.com/folderview?id= ... EllMzJBSEk

We haven't really worked much on expanding it much since July, but here is a small addenda folder (which will be periodically updated, hopefully) of new or improved grammars: https://drive.google.com/folderview?id= ... WppT3QyUFU

We've also been working on another collection, called the "Stack", which is for linguistics textbooks, surveys, typological studies, etc. It will also, hopefully, be periodically updated: https://drive.google.com/folderview?id= ... 214cnp5RjQ

Very useful though out of date to a large degree (the dictionary is more than half a century old, and for starters, it doesn't take heed of the laryngeal theory which already existed at the time but was still a matter of controversy), but a more up-to-date IE etymological dictionary has not appeared yet, so everybody still uses this one. Thank you! I have immediately bookmarked it.

You're quite welcome. I too have bookmarked it. It's very handy, even if out-of-date.

Be careful with this one, some of the translations can be a bit off, but still a really cool resource.
