Proto-Elamo-Dravidian: The Evidence and Its Implications (2007 Photocopy Reprint): Transactions, APS (vol. 71, part 3)
David W. McAlpin
Demonstrates that the Dravidian language family of South Asia is related to Elamite, a major language of ancient West Asia. Also, it follows up on some of the implications of this relationship. To do this, summaries are provided of comparative Dravidian & of Elamite grammar. The methodology employed is traditional, philologically based, comparative linguistics. While this work contains a fairly detailed & thorough discussion of comparative Dravidian & of Elamite grammar, it is not a comparative grammar or even the beginnings of one. Background introductions in archaeology & history are provided for those who are unfamiliar with the ancient Near East. This work has one goal: to prove beyond doubt that Elamite & Dravidian are cognate. Illustrations.
