A Comparative Grammar of the Indo-Germanic Languages

Volume II:
Morphology (Stem-Formation and Inflextion), Part I.

Karl Brugmann

Translated from German to English by Seymour Conway, W.H.D. Rouse.

The present volume has demanded a year’s continuous work and a good deal of anxious consideration from us both. But we shall be more than rewarded if it can do anything to extend the share which English-speaking students can claim in the marvellous increase of exact knowledge which the book itself records. It is the boast of modern discovery to have made the world more thinkable and human life more full of meaing in a thousand ways; and before the century reaches its close, Comparative Philology, that is, the History of Language, will have attained no mean rank in the great sisterhood of sciences whose task is to explore the history of man (adapted from the preface of the translators).

Contents: Morphology (Stem Formation and Inflexion):Suffixes in -o- and -ā-, Suffices in –r, Suffixes like -ero-, -erā-, -bho-, -monā-, and many more, the Relation of Adjectives to Participles, Substantives denoting material things of persons (Concrete Substantives), Nouns without Formative Suffixes (re-edition, 1891, New York; written in English).
