Karl Brugmann originally intended to include a volume on syntax in his
comparative grammar of Indo-European, but as that ambitious project
expanded, he and his publisher enlisted Berthold Delbrück (1842-1922) to
take on the treatment of syntax. Delbrück's three volumes on inflection and
phrase and sentence structure appeared between 1893 and 1900 and remain the
fullest treatment of Indo-European syntax to this day. In this, his first
volume, Delbrück gives an overview of the prevailing academic positions in
the field of Indo-European comparative syntax of his day. He applies the
Neogrammarian methodology used by Brugmann, and meticulously presents data
relating to nouns, the case system, adjectives, pronouns, numerals, adverbs
and prepositions, giving particular attention to the ablative and the
dative in a number of Indo-European languages.
