Book Information

   

Title: Grundriss der vergleichenden Grammatik der indogermanischen Sprachen 3 Volume Set
Written By: Karl Brugmann
Description:

Karl Brugmann (1849–1919) had recently taken up a newly-established chair
in comparative philology at Freiburg im Breisgau when he began to publish
his monumental, multi-volume comparative grammar of the Indo-European
languages. In his foreword he argued that a new overview was needed for
scholars and students of this rapidly developing ‘young’ subject (only 70
years old at the time). His book provides a fascinating snapshot of the
field, the scholars active in it, and the debates they engaged in. The
first volume is devoted to phonology; the second volume, on morphology, had
to be divided by the original publisher, and it is bound in three parts in
this reissue. There is also a volume containing indexes of words, topics
and names. Berthold Delbrück’s three-volume book on Indo-European syntax,
which complements Brugmann’s work, is also available in this series.
