Argumentaire
The Workshop will address the relation of phonology and phonetics in Avestan and neighbouring languages such as Old Indic, Old Persian and Middle Iranian. Being limited to written sources, the study of these languages necessarily starts from the graphemic representation that the scripts offer, which vary considerably as to their approach to phonetics and phonology. Accordingly, many academic works (including text editions) on Avestan and neighbouring languages show either a mixture of phonological and phonetic rendering of the language or a more transliteration-based approach. For a better view on the Avestan data, the workshop will take a broader view and include also discussion of neighbouring languages to shed light on differences and shared features of representation of phonetics and phonology of these languages in their orthographies. Additional information can be gained from loanwords which could shed light on the pronunciation of the donor language (for instance, Avestan words found in Middle Persian such as the various renderings of Av. aṣ̌a-). The issue is of central importance for Avestan philology and text edition.

A Round-Table discussion will round off the meeting.
