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: Angelsächsische Grammatik
Written By: Eduard Sievers

Series Title: LINCOM Gramatica

Unter Angelsächsisch verstehen wir die Sprache der germanischen Bewohner
Englands von ihren Anfängen bis gegen Mitte oder Ende des 11.
Jahrhunderts. Von da wird die Sprache, welche sich durch allmähliche
Zerstörung der alten Flexionsformen und Aufnahme französischer Elemente
von der Sprache der frühreren Periode unterscheidet, Englisch genannt. Das
Angelsächische lässt bereits in seinen ältesten Quellen dialektische
Unterschiede erkennen. Die Hauptdialekte sind Northumbrisch in Morden, der
Binnenländische oder Mercische im Innern, der sächsische im Süden und der
kentische im äussersten Südosten (aus der Einleitung).

Inhalt: Lautlehre (Übersicht über die westsächsischen Vokale, Verhältnis des
ags. Vocalismus zu den verwandten Sprachen, Übersicht über die ags.
Consonanten), Flexionslehre (Declination der Substantiva und Adjectiva,
Zahlwörter, Pronomina, Conjugation : die starken und die schwachen Verben,
verba prateritopraesentia), etc. (Re-edition; originally published 1898 in Halle;
written in German)
