Abstract:

Those who have impartially followed the development of comparative philology in the last
twenty years will be aware of the great progress it has made in this interval. In both the scope
and the nature of its work it has shown all the elasticity and creative vigour of a science that is
still young in spite of its seventy years. That its diverse and scattered details need to be once
again brought together under one systematic arrangement will hardly be doubted by any
competent judge. The first edition of Schleicher's excellent 'Compendium' appeared in 1861, and
was since twice published in a revised form by the author, the second time shortly before his
death. When it was edited finally in 1876 with very few changes indeed, the two editors were
already of opinion that it required complete remodelling. Thus l feel sure that the 'Elements', the
first volume of which is now before the reader, meets a real need (from the introduction of 1888
edition).

Contents: Definition of the science of the Indg. languages - Differentiation of dialects (The
Aryan branch - The Armenian branch - The Greek branch - The Albanian branch - The Italic
branch - The Keltic branch - The Germanic branch - The Baltic-Slavonic branch) - Phonology -
The sounds of the indg. primitive language - History of the separate Prim. Indg. Sounds (vowels
as sonants, vowels as consonants, nasals, liquids, ablaut, explosives, spirants) - Other
combinatory sound changes - Accentuation.

This re-edition has been published as no. 02 in the LINCOM Classica (LCLAS) series (originally
published 1888, London: Trübner & Co).
