Tungsten Euler (born 5 May 1950) is a German linguist and Indo-Europeanist.
Euler in 1979 with Rolf Hiersche in casting his doctorate with a dissertation on Indo-Iranian - Greek similarities between the nominal formation. This work helped to identify the Greek despite its geographical location as part of the original Eastern group of Indo-European languages. This was followed by lexical studies at the Innsbruck scholars of Wolfgang Meid. In his now more than 75 publications Euler handles most areas of the Indo-European studies. Focuses on the Baltic studies, Indoiranistik, Iranian, Gräzistik and Romance.
Position on contentious issues
Euler support developed by the Vienna Indo-Europeanists Georg Holzer 1995 theory of volume status and development of the Proto -Slavic from about 600 AD He also rejects the common precursor of the Baltic and Slavic Baltoslawische; this had already been separated early and would then have only affected one another. In the ( not very recent ) debate about the so-called Germanic " homeland " divides the Euler today already expressed by Gottfried Wilhelm Leibniz and Jürgen Udolph position that the Germanic languages or their precursors have not been established in the south of Scandinavia, but as evidenced by the hydronyms in the area of the resin, so today's southern Lower Saxony, Saxony -Anhalt and Thuringia had arisen. Decided rejects Euler from the view of many linguists that many special developments in Germanic are due to an underlying substrate, ie characteristics of the vorgermanischen speaker.
Tungsten Euler is a distant relative of mathematician Leonhard Euler ( 1707-1783 ). He lives in Munich, is married and has one son.
