The German linguists Johannes Schmidt (1843–1901) and Hugo Schuchardt
(1842–1927) sought to answer many questions relating to the development of
Indo-European languages, which are all believed to be descended from a single
common ancestor. Schmidt's Verwantschaftsverhältnisse was originally published
in 1872 and Schuchardt's Über die Lautgesetze followed in 1885; here they are
reissued together in one volume. Schmidt's work developed the 'wave model' of
language change, to which Schuchardt also subscribed. According to this
theory, linguistic innovations spread outwards concentrically like waves,
which become progressively weaker as time elapses and the distance from their
point of origin increases. Since later changes may not cover the same area,
there may be no sharp boundaries between neighbouring languages or dialects.
This theory stood in opposition to the tree model and the doctrine of sound
laws propounded by the Neogrammarian school of linguists, which is roundly
critiqued in Schuchardt's contribution.
