Excerpt from The Semantic Sources of the Words for the Emotions in Sanskrit, Greek, Latin, and the Germanic Languages: A Dissertation Submitted to the Faculty of the Graduate School of Arts and Literature in Candidacy for the Degree of Doctor of Philosophy, Department of Comparative Philology, General Linguistics, and Indo-Iranian Philology

It is the purpose of this investigation to trace and to interpret the semantic history of the words for the emotions in some of the Indo European languages, and to establish a comprehensive classification of their sources and their shifts in meaning.

I believe that, except for certain difficulties mentioned on page 9, the intention has been realized. At any rate, the wider heads marked by capital letters (a-g) and by Roman numerals will accommodate any more specific developments that may have failed to appear in the material to which I have limited myself. So words with an earlier meaning 'smile' for which I have, contrary to expectation, not succeeded in establishing a development to 'be pleased, or so' will readily fall into group B. V, and so forth.
