  • Abstract

Informations and abstract


The article highlights the contribution of Tullio De Mauro to explain both the original function of accusative in Indo-European and Greek and the meaning of the Greek name of dative, dotike ptosis. Methodology is particularly remarkable, as De Mauro takes advantage of statistical and probabilistic means, a very innovative analysis as to the Sixties of last century. Some of the results attained by De Mauro are still tenable up to now.
