‘Four’: A Map

I didn’t plan it this way, but since the discussion of the etymology of ‘four’ has unfolded into a small saga in several acts, I have to organise it for convenience. Here is a map of the route:

  1. [Word of the Month: Proto-Indo-European ‘Four’]
  2. [Even and Odd]
  3. [The Name of the Game: Jakobson Reads Vasmer]
  4. [Twos and Troops: Sifting the Evidence]
  5. [Forgotten Derivatives and their Sexual Implications]
  6. [Only Connect: The Strange Triangle]
  7. [Two Is Company, Four Is a Party] NEW!
The End
