Abstract:

<I>Variation and change in Tocharian B</I> is a systematic and extensive
treatment of linguistic variants attested in this most archaic of the two
Tocharian languages, which are known through manuscripts from the first
millennium CE found along the Northern Silk Road in X?nji?ng, China. The
precise nature of the variants in Tocharian B has been the issue of a long
debate. A careful survey of all variants from a wealth of published and
unpublished texts shows that most of the variation is due to chronological
development. Lists of text classification criteria and overviews of text
types make this volume an ideal handbook for the study of the Tocharian
lexicon, grammar, and manuscripts. It is of interest for scholars and
students of Tocharian and Indo-European alike, and it will be both
practical and indispensable for checking variants and their relative
chronology.

Michaël Peyrot's research focuses on the philology and synchronic
linguistics of Tocharian, as well as the prehistory of the Tocharian
languages, from both an Indo-European and a language contact perspective.
He studied comparative Indo-European linguistics and Tocharian in Leiden
and Paris, and edited a large number of Tocharian manuscripts for the
International Dunhuang Project of the British Library. He is a contributor
of the Leiden Indo-European Etymological Dictionary, and currently carries
out research on the Tocharian subjunctive.
