Book Information

   

Title: Grundriss der vergleichenden Grammatik der indogermanischen Sprachen
Subtitle: Volume 2 : Wortbildungslehre (Stammbildungs-und Flexionslehre), Part 2
Written By: Karl Brugmann
Description:

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.
