Chapter 1 offers an introductory sketch and a discussion (pp. 17-40) of features held to indicate an Afro-Asiatic substratum.

Chapter 2 is concerned with word order and an alleged main-clause enclitic particle (*es, *eti or the like).

Chapter 3 proposes reconstructions of most Old Irish personal endings, especially those with absolute and conjunct variants, and

Chapter 4 covers verbal composition and enclitics. The viability of a generalised particle is questioned in both, and

Chapter 5 focuses on ‘*eti and pseudo-*eti’. Chapter 6 deals with relative marking, and

Chapter 7 gives a brief overall summary.
