Outlines of a History of the German Language free pdf Excerpt from Outlines of a History of the German Language This work is the result of a want felt by the authors in the course of their professional teaching. Several good New High German grammars are in existence to supply the wants of Englishmen, but a good history of the German language has, as far as the authors know, still to be written. The present work pretends to be nothing more than a mere sketch, which they hope that they may one day have the opportunity and leisure to fill in. It was intended to call the work "A Short History of the German Language, based upon Schleicher's Geschichte, der deutschen Sprache (Stuttgart, 1879)," for Schleicher's book seemed to them long to have been the best single work on the subject. But of late years the study of philology has been making such strides, and the Germans especially have applied themselves with such energy to the study of general and special linguistic studies, that it was felt to be more probably useful to give the results of the most recent studies of their own language by German philologists. The works found most useful by the authors for this purpose are after Schleicher's Geschichte, Paul's Principien der Sprachgeschichte, Ruckert's Geschichte der Neuhochdeutschen Schriftsprache, Scherer's Geschichte der deutschen Sprache, and Wedewer's Zur Sprachwissenjschaft (Freiburg im Breisgau, 1861). To this must be added Kluge's admirable, but all too brief Etymologisches Worterbuch der deutschen Sprache, from whose Introduction the authors have, with Prof. Kluge's permission, borrowed much, and as far as possible adhered to his words and illustrations. Chapter I. is, in the main, based upon Paul's Principien, and Chapter II. upon Kluge and Wedewer. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
