Who is Alan Nussbaum?

Alan Jeffrey "Jerry" Nussbaum is an American Indo-European linguist and classical philologist, best known for his work on the language of the Homeric epics and the nominals of the IE languages and of reconstructed Proto-Indo-European — especially their derivational semantics and morphology.
