Prior examine at the Sabellian languages has been dedicated commonly to the phonetic and morphological positive aspects of those languages as components for the reconstruction of the prehistoric levels of Latin. the current booklet goals at analysing the semantic, syntactic, and pragmatic positive factors of a subset of grammatical phrases, the demonstratives. It includes a thorough description in their synchronic behaviour, which allows either a comparability to the Latin information with new hypotheses at the epigraphic genres in Republican Italy and a reconstruction of the Italic origins of those phrases in response to typological ideas. Neither the grammar of Sabellian nor the pragmatic scope of the Sabellian inscriptions can be thought of a priori just like their Latin comparanda.

Sample text

Ferine. 13 11 The use of a verbal sentence instead of a title is also a feature of Latin legal texts: see Dupraz (b). 12 Poni is the name of a ritual offering, probably a liquid one, perhaps ‘mead’. See Untermann () – and Weiss () –. The gender of this *i-stem is unknown. 13 Vatuo and ferine are respectively the name of some part of the sacrificed animal and the name of some container. For these probable hypotheses, see Untermann ()  chapter two The adnominal acc. sg.

Iuku. habetu. [then follows the prayer ()] (II b ) Have these words: [prayer ()] Adnominal acc. pl. neut. estu and the co-occurring noun iuku point to a formula in direct discourse quoted immediately after the sentence in which estu appears. Again, the formula in direct discourse is quoted as a tool which must be used at some precise point of the ritual. In the four occurrences in () and (), the set of expressions to which the demonstrative points appears before the sentence in which the demonstrative is used.

Sg. A more plausible explanation is that -íh does not indicate a diphthongisation in puíh, but only a poetic synaeresis which involves the vowel *-o- of the stem *kwo- and a particle. In the Umbrian nom. sg. masc. poi/poei/poe ‘who’ a particle has been added to the stem *kwo-, whatever its etymological form may be, and the attested forms prove that this new nom. sg. masc. has not been monophthongised: *-o- and the particle did not constitute a diphthong when the Umbrian diphthongs were monophthongised, but were separate vowels.
