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.

In den letzten Jahren hat sich auf dem Gebiet der osketisch-umbrischen
Grammatik eine erfreuliche Rührigkeit gezeigt. Den Anfang hat Bruckmann
gemacht[...] Auch der Umfang des zweiten Bandes[dieser Grammatik] ist
über Erwarten angewachsen. Was zunächst die Feststellung des
Inschriftentextes betrifft, so habe ich während zweier Aufenthalte in Italien
[...] Gelegenheit gehabt, die meisten Inschriften im Original zu sehen und von
einem grossen Theile derselben Abschriften zu nehmen. Einige veränderte
Lesarten ergaben sich erst während des zweiten Aufenthals, so dass leider
die vorher gedruckte Formenlehre und Syntax noch die frühere Lesung
erscheint. (Aus dem Vorwort der Ausgabe von 1897).

Inhalt: Nominale Stammbildung (Wurzelnomina, Suffixe), Deklination (ā – ē-
Stämme, Diphtonische und Konsonantische Stämme, Adverbia, zahlwörter,
Pronomina (Stämme, Flexion, Personal- und Possessivpronomina), Verbale
Stammbildung, Konjugation [Osketisch-umbrische Tempora und Modi,
Präsens, Imperfekt, Futurum I, Perfektstamm (s-,f-,t-Perfekt, apelust, entelus
(umbr.), upsed, portust), Futurum II, Passivum, Verbum Infinitum], Syntax
(Adverbia,Pronomina, Genera verbi, Partikel, Prä- und Postpositionen,
Satzverbindung, der einfache Satz, Wortstellung), Sammlung von Inschriften.
