Title: Grundfragen der Sprachforschung
Subtitle: Mit Rücksicht auf W. Wundts Sprachpsychologie erörtert
Written By: Berthold Delbrück
Description:

In this 1901 work, Berthold Delbrück (1842–1922), who is famous for his
contribution to the study of the syntax in Indo-European languages, focuses on
Wilhelm Wundt's understanding of speech. Wundt (1832–1920), often referred to
as the 'father of experimental psychology', held that language was one of the
most important aspects of mental processing. In order to account for Wundt's
theories on the nature of the soul, and his belief that emotion and
perception are
acts of experience rather than objects, Delbrück compares Wundt's theories
with those of psychologist and educationalist J. F. Herbart (1776–1841).
Delbrück also pays attention to the explanation of such topics as the hand
gestures used by actors (and the people of Naples), the sentence structure of
the German language, and onomatopoeia, though he emphasises that he has
not addressed those elements in Wundt's works which are founded in
psychology rather than in grammar.
