MetadataShow full item record
There are many similarities between the languages of the Balkan Peninsula, some superficial, others so profound that they must result from prolonged periods of popular and learned bilingualism. It is the aim of the present study to analyse some aspects of this so-called Balkan Linguistic Union which may be solely or partly a result of Greek influence, and to suggest lines of research which may help to interpret them.
