Title: Vergleichende Syntax der indogermanischen Sprachen
Subtitle: Volume 3
Written By: Berthold Delbrück
Description:

Karl Brugmann originally intended to include a volume on syntax in his
comparative grammar of Indo-European, but as that ambitious project
expanded, he and his publisher enlisted Berthold Delbrück (1842–1922) to
take on the treatment of syntax. Delbrück’s three volumes on inflection and
phrase and sentence structure appeared between 1893 and 1900 and remain the
fullest treatment of Indo-European syntax to this day. In this final
volume, Delbrück again explains that he has not treated the full range of
Indo-European languages, nor tried to explain how the attested forms and
usages arose. Even so, Delbrück marshalls an impressive range of material
as he discusses a comprehensive range of structures from apposition and
simple questions to complex sentences involving co-ordination and
subordination. The volume ends with thorough indexes of words (100 pages),
subjects, literary references, and authors to all three volumes on syntax.
