As a knowledge of Gothic is indispensable to students of the oldest periods of the other Germanic languages, this book will useful to any rate students whose interests are mainly philology and linguistics. Considerable care and trouble have been taken in the selection of the material contained in the chapters relating to the phonology and accidence, and I venture to say that the student, who thoroughly masters the book, will not only have gained a comprehensive knowledge of Gothic, but will also have aquired a considerable knowledge of Comparative Germanic Grammar.
Contents: Alphabet and pronunciation, the primary Germanic vowel-system, the primary Germanic vowel-system, the Gothic development of the general Germanic vowels of accented syllables, the first sound shiftig, Verner´s law, the Gothic development of the general Germanic consonant-system, declension of nouns, classification of verbs, word-formation, etc. (Re-edition; originally published 1917 in Oxford; written in English).
