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: Der indogermanische Ablaut
Subtitle: (Vornehmlich in seinem Verhältnis zur Betonung)
Written By: Hermann Alfred Hirt
URL: www.lincom-shop.eu
Series Title: LINCOM Classica
Description:

Dieses Buch behandelt den indogermanischen Ablaut, im wesentlichen aber nur
soweit er durch den Akzent bedingt ist. Es gehört zu den sichersten Wahrheiten
in unserer Wissenschaft, dass die Vokalschwächung im Indogermanischen
durch Tonentziehung hervorgerufen ist. Aber über die genaue Wirkung des
Akzents hat man noch nicht zur Klarheit kommen können. Meine Arbeit gründet
sich auf das, was ich in den letzten Bänden der Indogerm. Forschungen
veröffentlicht habe. Das, was ich dort auseinandergesetzt habe, konnte durch
das reiche neue Material, das ich gebe, in einigen Punkten modifiziert werden,
im allem Wesentlichen hielt es aber Stand, und wird Stand halten. Ich hoffe
nicht nur, [...] der Wahrheit am nächsten gekommen zu sein, sondern hoffe,
diese selbst gefunden zu haben (aus der Einleitung).

Inhalt: 1: Die einsilbigen Basen (schwer, leicht), 2: die zweisilbigen Basen
(exeu-, exek-, erjek-, u.a. Basen), 3: die dreisilbigen Basen, Nominal- und
Verbaltypen (re-edition; 1900, Strassburg, written in German).
