The Traditional Arguments Reviewed
This chapter presents a critical discussion of traditional arguments, starting with those based on evidence referring to factors connected to the Italic languages themselves, and then moving on to those based on more general linguistic considerations. The arguments are further grouped together according to the criteria on which they are based. The chapter contends that traditional arguments are inconclusive and recourse to alternative criteria is advised.
