Title: Indogermanische Grammatik (Volume 4)
Written By: Hermann Alfred Hirt
Description:

Hermann Alfred Hirt (1865–1936) taught Greek, Latin and early Germanic
languages at Leipzig University from 1892 to 1912 before moving to the
chair of Sanskrit and comparative linguistics at Giessen. Born around the
time when Bopp and Schleicher were publishing their ground-breaking work on
Indo-European, and a young man when Brugmann published his monumental
comparative grammar (all available in this series), Hirt began this
seven-volume grammar in the 1920s soon after the exciting discovery of
Tocharian and the decipherment of Hittite. The project arose out of his
extensive research on the historical phonology of Indo-European vowels,
which led him to consider much wider issues. Volume 4 (1928) covers the
verb, as well as compounds and reduplication. Hirt’s curiosity about the
origins and development of Indo-European is evident throughout, leading him
to propose two layers (older and more recent) of strong verbs.
