Title: Jacob Wackernagel, Lectures on Syntax
Subtitle: With Special Reference to Greek, Latin, and Germanic
Published: 2009
Publisher: Oxford University Press

Editor: David Langslow

This book is an English version of two series of highly acclaimed
introductory lectures given by the great Swiss linguist and classical
philologist Jacob Wackernagel (1853-1938) at the University of Basle in
1918-19 on aspects of Greek, Latin, and German in languages. Out of print
in German since 1996, these lectures remain the best available
introduction, in any language, not only in Greek, Latin, and comparative
syntax but also to many topics in the history and pre-history of Greek and
Latin, and with their relations with other languages. Other subjects, such
as the history of grammatical terminology, are also brillantly dealt with.
This new edition supplements the German original by providing a translation
of all quotations and examples, a large number of detailed footnotes
offering background information and suggestions for further reading, and a
single biography which brings together Wackernagel's references and those
added in the notes.
