An Introduction to the Gothic Language

This handbook was written specifically for beginning students. It presents twenty-seven graded readings, each accompanied by a vocabulary and an explanation of grammatical details; the final chapter provides a sample of the Codex Argenteus. Among the readings, the first seven are in effect preliminary exercises. The remaining twenty readings represent the Gothic Bible and the Skeireins. The external history of the language is also outlined, as well as the elements of phonetics, and the essentials of phonologic and analogic change.

About the Author

William Bennett was a professor in the department of Germanic languages and literatures at the University of Michigan and the author of 17 articles and four book chapters on Germanic linguistics.

Reviews

"An introductory textbook of Gothic by a scholar of Professor Bennett's eminence is of course to be welcomed without qualification, the more so because it in no way duplicates its competitors in the field. The clarity of presentation is exemplary." —Modern Language Review
