Abstract:

The distinguished French linguist Antoine Meillet (1866-1936) was a pupil
of Saussure and one of the most important researchers and teachers of the
twentieth century in the field of Indo-European languages, counting among
his own pupils Benveniste, Dumézil and Martinet. In this book, first
published in 1917, Meillet shows the unique features which mark out the
Germanic languages (including English) from the rest of the Indo-European
family. Acknowledging that the earliest written examples become available
only long after 'proto-Germanic' had split into its various successor
languages, he nonetheless supplies evidence both for the original language
and for the developments which led to that splitting. His conclusion is
that although the Germanic languages are indisputably Indo-European, even
the most conservative (modern German) has moved a long way from its roots,
and that English - both in grammar and in vocabulary - has moved furthest
of all.
