Zur Geschichte des Perfects im Indogermanischen : mit besonderer Rücksicht auf Griechisch und Lateinisch by Hermann Osthoff( Book )

Morphologische Untersuchungen auf dem Gebiete der indogermanischen Sprachen by Hermann Osthoff( Book )

37 editions published between 1878 and 2016 in 3 languages and held by 140 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Hermann Osthoff (1847-1909) and Karl Brugmann (1849-1919) were central figures in the circle of German scholars who rejected a doctrinal approach to the study of linguistics. They came to be known as the Neogrammarian school. At the core of their work was the theory that European languages, together with a subset of languages found in central and southern Asia, have a common origin in a single prehistoric language. They called this ancestor Indo-Germanic (known today as Indo-European) and claimed that its descendants are all related to one another by varying degrees of closeness. This six-volume elaboration of this thesis was published between 1878 and 1910. Volume 5 (1890) comprises various essays, including an account of how the numbers 10 and 100 are formed within Indo-European languages and an excursus detailing the forming of the nominative and accusative cases
