Le(s) nom(s) de la montagne en louvite
= Paper =
 
The name of the mountain in luwian raises difficulties, because of the use of the ideograms in both the hieroglyphic and cuneiform writings. Whereas *ariyatti- is an excellent candidate for cuneiform ḪUR.SAG-ti, it seems increasingly certain that the hieroglyphic sign MONS was read wati-. I showed that watti- “mountain” and other terms etymologically connected seem attested in cuneiform luwian as well. It is not, therefore, unimaginable that ḪUR.SAG-ti was read watti-.

Quelques remarques autour de *y > lydien d*
= Paper =
 
Ten years ago, H. C. Melchert developed an interesting hypothesis about the fate of *y in Lydian: in certain environments, *y > d. In this paper, a new etymology for the Greek ethnic λυδος “Lydian” is proposed, which seems to corroborate Melcher’s theory: it could derive from the name of the Luvian country Lūya > *lūda → Greek λυδος.
