Notes on a Middle Persian sound change: Greek Ἀναῗτις and features of vowel length

Résumé

This article discusses additional evidence for the Middle Persian lengthening of i and u in final syllables suggested by Korn 2009. It removes the apparent counterexample of Greek “Anaītis”, which would appear to speak against the lengthening being linked to voiced stops, and presents evidence from phonetic research that vowel height can play a role in lengthening processes, which explains why Middle Persian a is not lengthened.
