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.

Description:

A Simplified Grammar of the Pali Language

E. Müller

I intended to help the students of Buddhistical literature, by collecting the
idiomatical pecularities of the sacred language, comparing it chiefly to
Sanskrit, and in a few cases also to other Indian vernaculars. As the
publication of Pali texts has taken so wide dimensions during the last ten
years, I thought it would not be out of place to consider and work out the new
materials that have come into our possession through these books, mostly
unknown to those who made Pali grammar an object of their study (from the
preface).

Contents: Alphabet, pronunciation, vowels, change of vowels, change of
quantity, nasal vowels, vowels added or dropped, consonants, general
remarks referring to consonants of different classes, compound consonants,
rules of Sandhi, declension, comparison of adjectives, pronominal inflexion,
numerals, conjugation, Valâhassajâtaka (Re-edition; originally published 1884
in London; written in English)
