Book Information

   

Title: Altindische Syntax
Description:

The famous scholar of Indo-European syntax Berthold Delbrück (1842–1922)
published this study of Sanskrit syntax in 1888. It focuses on the stage of
the language that was termed 'Vedic' by the Indian grammarian Panini (c.
400 BCE). Delbrück's intention was to describe that material as clearly
and thoroughly as possible in order to facilitate future comparative or
in-depth studies. The book begins with chapters devoted to basic sentence
structure and word order, before moving on to number, gender, case,
declension of nouns, and then adjectives, adverbs, pronouns and verbs with
their tenses, moods and conjugations. Prepositions and particles follow,
and the book ends with discussion of subordinate clauses and other complex
structures. The grammatical points are illustrated by numerous text
examples, with references and translations into German, and there are
thorough indexes of words and of textual passages cited.
