Introduction to the Study of Language: A Critical Survey of the History and Methods of Comparative Philology of the Indo-European Languages
Breitkopf and Härtel, 1882 - 142 páginas
"The character of the present work is mainly determined by the circumstance that it is intended by the author to facilitate the study of the "Grammars" which Beeitkopf & Hrtel are publishing, as well as the comprehension of comparative philology in its newest form. The book here laid before the public is divided into a historical and an analytical part. In the former the development of philology from Bopp's time to the present is roughly sketched with the especial aim of showing clearly how the problems which particularly occupy our attention today have developed naturally from what preceded them; in the second part the most important of these problems are discussed"--Preface.

Página 1 - The Sanscrit language, whatever be its antiquity, is of a wonderful structure; more perfect than the Greek, more copious than the Latin, and more exquisitely refined than either, yet bearing to both of them a stronger affinity, both in the roots of verbs and in the forms of grammar, than could possibly have been produced by accident; so strong indeed, that no philologer could examine them all three, without believing them to have sprung from some common source, which, perhaps, no longer exists...
