Abstract:

Karl Brugmann (1849-1919) was professor of comparative language sciences at
Freiburg im Breisgau when he began publishing his monumental, multi-volume
comparative grammar of the Indo-European languages, synthesising the first
70 years of research in a rapidly developing academic subject, and
identifying areas for future investigation. Volume 1, on phonology, begins
with an introduction to Indo-European philology and provides a
bibliographic orientation which is itself a fascinating snapshot of the
field. The main part of the book focuses in turn on each
Proto-Indo-European sound and its reflexes in the earliest attested
languages of each language family (Sanskrit, Avestan, Armenian, Greek,
Italic, Germanic, Old Irish, Balto-Slavic). Comparisons are also made
within families, for example between Gothic and Old English. Brugmann also
discusses Ablaut and sound changes including elision, contraction and
lengthening as well as intonation and stress.

Subtitle: Volume 2 : Wortbildungslehre (Stammbildungs-und Flexionslehre), Part 1
Published: 2010
Publisher: Cambridge University Press
                http://us.cambridge.org

Author: Karl Brugmann
Paperback: ISBN: 9781108006507 Pages: Price: U.K. £ 23.99
Paperback: ISBN: 9781108006507 Pages: Price: U.S. $ 35.99
Abstract:

The monumental, multi-volume comparative grammar of the Indo-European
languages by Karl Brugmann (1849-1919) provided a synthesis of the first 70
years of research in a rapidly-developing academic subject, and identified
areas for future investigation. Volume 2, split into three parts, covers
morphology, roots and inflection, beginning with nouns and continuing with
pronouns and verbs. It begins with a substantial introduction that includes
bibliographic information, and then focuses in turn on each
Proto-Indo-European feature and its reflexes in the earliest attested
languages of each language family (Sanskrit, Avestan, Armenian, Greek,
Italic, Germanic, Old Irish, Balto-Slavic). Comparisons are also made
within families, for example between Gothic and Old English. Owing to its
length, the original publisher bound this volume in two parts, paginated as
a single sequence; in this reissue, it is divided into three parts,
maintaining the same pagination.

Part I:
1. Nominale (und pronominale) Stammbildung und Flexion;
2. Nominale Zusammensetzung (Nominalkomposita);
3. Reduplicierte Nominalbildungen;
4. Nomina mit stammbildenden Suffixen;
5. Nomina ohne stammbildende Suffixe (Wurzelnomina).
