Abstract:

In this 1901 work, Berthold Delbrück (1842-1922), who is famous for hiscontribution to the study of the syntax in Indo-European languages, focuses onWilhelm Wundt's understanding of speech. Wundt (1832-1920), often referred toas the 'father of experimental psychology', held that language was one of themost important aspects of mental processing. In order to account for Wundt'stheories on the nature of the soul, and his belief that emotion andperception areacts of experience rather than objects, Delbrück compares Wundt's theorieswith those of psychologist and educationalist J. F. Herbart (1776-1841).Delbrück also pays attention to the explanation of such topics as the handgestures used by actors (and the people of Naples), the sentence structure ofthe German language, and onomatopoeia, though he emphasises that he hasnot addressed those elements in Wundt's works which are founded inpsychology rather than in grammar.
