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.

Title: A Simplified Grammar of the Roumanian Language
Written By: R. Torceanu
URL: http://www.lincom-shop.eu/shop/article_ISBN%25209783862900374/LINGram-51%3A-A-Simplified-Grammar-of-the-Roumanian-Language.html?shop_param=cid%3D1%26aid%3DISBN%25209783862900374%26
Series Title: LINCOM Gramatica 51
Description:

I have endeavoured in this short grammar to give the student a clear notion
of the framework of the Roumanian language. Any elucidatory details which
may be considered not absolutely indispensable in a strictly philological
handbook will nevertheless prove useful to those who learn the language for
practical purposes (from the Introduction).

The grammar includes chapters on the alphabet and pronunciation, nominal
and verbal morphology, syntax. (Re-edition; originally published 1883 in
London; written in English)
