PALaC is short for “Pre-Classical Anatolian Languages in Contact”. The project has received funding from the European Research Council (ERC) under the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme (grant agreement n° 757299).

PALaC is a project by Federico Giusfredi (contact the Principal Investigator).

The aim of PALaC is to identify and study all the traces of language contact in the corpora from the Anatolian Area in the II and early I millennia BCE, comparing the results of the linguistic analysis with the data on the historical and cultural geography of the Ancient Near East.
