The Basis of the Comparative Method
Bhat, D. N. S.
Language Sciences, 35, 15-21, Apr 75
The comparative method is not a single method of reconstruction but a complex set of procedures based on different assumptions and hypotheses about language change. The paper examines sound-meaning relationships, traditions, phonetic distinctions and the sets of oppositions, & regularity and irreversibility of phonetic change in the discussion. (CK)
