Hjalmar Frisk

Hjalmar Frisk (4 August 1900, in Gothenburg – 1 August 1984, in Gothenburg) was a Swedish linguist and etymologist in Indo-European studies. He was also rector of the University of Göteborg from 1951 to 1966.

Early on, he became interested in Indo-European studies. Thus, as early as 1927, he published a translation of the historical account ''The Periplus of the Erythraean Sea'', written in Greek under the title Περίπλους τῆς Ἐρυθρᾶς θαλάσσης.

His most noted work was the three-volume ''Griechisches etymologisches Wörterbuch'' (''Greek Etymological Dictionary'') written between 1954 and 1972 and published in Heidelberg, Germany.

In 1968, he became a member of the Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences. Provided by Wikipedia
