Contributions to journals

Vaan, Michiel de, “Reduplicated demonstratives in ancient Indo-European languages”, Transactions of the Philological Society 113 (March, 2015): 38–52.  
abstract:
This paper discusses the occurrence of reduplicated demonstrative pronouns in the older Indo-European languages and analyses their usage in the light of general linguistic insights into reduplication and demonstrative pronouns. The main aim is to find out whether the attested and reconstructed reduplicated demonstratives were inherited from Proto-Indo-European or arose at a later stage in the individual branches. I will discuss evidence from Sanskrit, Ancient Greek, the ancient Italic languages (Latin and the Sabellic branch), and the Celtic languages.
