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: A Grammar of Old English: Morphology, Volume 2
Written By: † Richard M. Hogg
Robert D Fulk
URL: http://www.wiley.com/remtitle.cgi?isbn=0631136711
Description:

“A Grammar of Old English, Volume II: Morphology” completes the two-
volume analysis of the sounds and grammatical forms of the Old English
language that began with Richard M. Hogg's highly regarded “Grammar of Old
English: Phonology”. Initiated by Richard Hogg, and revised and completed
by R.D. Fulk, this new volume incorporates insights derived from recent
theoretical and technological advances, focusing on the morphological
structure of Old English words. Most helpful in this regard is the use of digital
resources, foremost of which are databases compiled by the “Dictionary of
Old English” project at the University of Toronto. Hogg and Fulk explore the
separation of diachronic and synchronic considerations in the frequently
complex analysis of noun morphology. This volume also includes extensive
bibliographical coverage of Old English morphology, and consideration of
recent controversies in Germanic linguistics, particularly in the treatment of
verbs.

“A Grammar of Old English, Volume II: Morphology” offers rich and rewarding
insights into an important branch of linguistics relating to the development of
an early form of the English language. This work, paired with the re-released
“Volume 1”, is essential for scholars in the field.
