Das Gotische ist die älteste bezeugte Literatursprache im Kreise des
Germanischen. Wenn unser Deutsch erst etwa vier Jahrhunderte später zu
einem Schrifttum gelangt ist, so gibt das höhere Alter dem Gotischen einen
bedeutenden Vorzug. Im 8. Jahrhundert, wo unsere Muttersprache zuerst in
Erscheinung tritt, haben jüngere Lautgesetze mit komplizierten Wirkungen das
Gesamtbild der germanischen Spracheingetümlichkeit sehr wesentlich

Deklination, Konjugation, Wortbildung, Wortschatz, Anhänge (Lesestücke,
Krimgotisch, Glossar).
