I have been having an offlist conversation with a few list members about my
statement "I am a Vedicist...."
One person pointed out a similar remark by Margaret Mead: "Nothing human is
alien to me."
What inspired me was a Latin remark made by the great Russian linguist,
Roman Jakobson, a paraphrase from the Roman playwright Terence:
One famous quotation by Terence reads: "*Homo sum, humani nihil a me alienum
puto*", or "I am a man, I consider nothing that is human alien to me." This
appeared in his play *Heauton
My version of Jakobson's paraphrase, which I sent to a list member a little
while ago, is:
"I am a linguist; there is nothing in linguistics that I consider foreign to
Perhaps the List in general might find this of interest.
