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.

Written By: Wilhelm Streitberg

Series Title: LINCOM Gramatica
Description:

Die neue Auflage des Elementarbuches ist aufs gründlichste durchgearbeitet
worden. Zum erstenmal habe ich versucht, die Ergebnisse der
Intonationsforschungen von Sievers für die gotische Grammatik nutzbar zu
machen. Jeder, der die Methode dieser Untersuchungen beherrscht, der zu
selbstständiger nachprüfung imstande ist, weiß ihre Bedeutung zu würdigen.
Den Fernerstehenden aber wird es willkommen sein, zu erfahren, was sich
auf diesem Wege erreichen läßt. Manchen wird das, so hoffe ich, dazu
anregen, sich mit diesem Forschungsmittel vertraut zu machen. (Aus dem
Vorwort der fünften und sechsten Auflage, 1920)

Inhalt: Einleitung (die Goten, Wulfila, Die gotische Bibel, übrige
Sprachdenkmäler). Erster Hauptteil: Lautlehre (Konsonanten, Vokale,
schwankende Schreibungen, Aussprache des Gotischen, Ablautsystem des
Gotischen, Vokale und Konsonanten im Vergleich zum
Gemeingermanischen) Zweiter Hauptteil: Formenlehre (Deklination,
Konjugation, unregelmäßige Verba), Dritter Hauptteil: Syntax (Einfacher Satz,
Nomen und Pronomen, Verbum Negation, Fragesatz, zusammengesetzte
Sätze), Vierter Hauptteil: Texte (Mattheus-Evangelium u.a.)

This re-edition has been published as no 138 in the LINCOM Gramatica
