Jost Gippert: Our Featured Linguist!

"Buenos dias", "buenas noches" -- this was the first words in a foreign language I heard in my life, as a three-year old boy growing up in developing post-war Western Germany, where the first gastarbeiters had arrived from Spain. Fascinated by the strange sounds, I tried to get to know some more languages, the only opportunity being TV courses of English and French -- there was no foreign language education for pre-teen school children in Germany yet in those days.

Title: Éléments de Grammaire Basque
Subtitle: Dialecte Souletin suivis d´un Vocabulaire Basque-Français & Français-Basque
Written By: Louis Gèze
Series Title: LINCOM Gramatica 22
Description:

J'ai voulu apprendre le basque. Dès les premières recherches, j'ai été
frappé de l'absence, pour les dialectes français, d'un traité qui embrassât
méthodique-ment les diverses parties de la grammaire et qui fût pour le
basque ce qu'est la grammaire de Lhomond pour le latin. On trouve
d'excellents traités spéciaux, mais aucun d'eux n'a eu pour but d'exposer
l'ensemble de la langue; aucun ne suffit. Persuadé que les études
méthodiques peuvent seules rendre la mémoire sûre, j'ai réuni les règles
disséminées dans ces ouvrages, re-cherché celles qui me paraissaient
résulter de la lecture des auteurs et tâché de donner de l'unité à
l'ensemble de ces notes. J'ai reconnu que, pour ne pas me perdre dans les
détails, je devais me borner à l'explication d'un dialecte. Le souletin m'a
paru offrir les formes verbales les mieux conservées et les plus complètes
(de la préface de l'édition 1875).

Table des matières: Orthographe - accent - des parties du discours - du
genre - des nombres - des cas- du substantif - de la préposition - des
adjectives - du pronom - du verbe - de l'adverbe - de la conjonction - de
l'interjecton - vocabulaire basque-français - vocabulaire français- basque.

In his grammar on the Souletin dialect of Basque Louis Gèze mainly focuses
on the complex verb forms which íncorporate absolutive, ergative, dative
and allocutive markers, various tense-aspect-mood markers and number
markers resulting in thousands of more or less regular verb and auxiliary
forms. This re-edition has been published as no. 22 in the LINCOM Gramatica
(LINGram) series (originally published 1875, Bayonne: Lamaignère, written
in French).
