Announcements

  • The Zotero library underlying the CEToM bibliography is now public and can be viewed here.
  • We would like to thank Prof. Dr. Thomas Oberlies and Pratik Rumde from the Seminar für Indologie und Tibetologie of the Georg-August-Universität Göttingen for providing our project with scans of the nachlass of Wilhelm Siegling. The nachlass includes letters to and from Siegling throughout his career that are of great importance to the history of the field of Tocharian studies. This material will be published on CEToM, accompanied by transcriptions of the letters, in the course of 2024.

Commentary

Reading lyakeṃ in THT 338 a 1 and interpetation as "hurdle, fence" by Krause 1952: 179, folllowed by Adams 1999: 565 and Malzahn 2013b: 171. Differently, Adams 2013a: 615 who reads lyaṣkeṃ or lyarṣkeṃ and correctly points out that the spelling ‹a› in this manuscript excludes underlying /ä/ and hence a form from the root lyäk-. A close inspection of the original manuscript THT 338 strongly suggests a reading lyarkā. ‹ṣ› and ‹eṃ› are excluded.
