Title: Vorlesungen über Syntax: mit besonderer Berücksichtigung von Griechisch, Lateinisch und Deutsch
Written By: Jacob Wackernagel
Description:

In 1920–1924 Jacob Wackernagel (1853–1938), Professor of Comparative
Philology at the University of Basel, published two volumes of lectures on
Greek, Latin and German syntax based on his 1918–1919 courses for beginning
undergraduates (who would already have studied all three languages at
school). Wackernagel introduces the principles of grammatical functions and
cross-linguistic work, and provides a foundation for the understanding of
comparative syntax. The book remained in print for many decades thanks to
its lively style and well-chosen examples from classical texts. The
Sanskritist Louis Renou (1896–1966), writing on Wackernagel in 1938,
asserted that ‘no linguist could possibly afford to ignore this book’, and
it remains of interest to historical linguists and scholars of classical
languages today. In this, the first volume, Wackernagel outlines the
history of syntactic theory from ancient times to the present, and provides
a detailed treatment of the verb.
