M. O'C. Walshe, has now completely rewritten the work to meet the needs of the student whose prime concern is with the reading of Middle High German literature rather than with the language as such. Nevertheless the grammatical introduction, though recast, is still quite extensive, in order to show the often subtle and confusing differences from modern German.

Excerpt from A Middle High-German Primer: With Grammar, Notes, and Glossary Those who wish to acquire a sound historical knowledge of the modern phase of the language ought to possess Professor Brandt's Grammar of the German Language, published by Putnam's Sons, New York and London, I884. It may not be out of place to state here also that an Old high-german Primer is already in the hands of the printers, which will help to throw much light upon many points of Middle high-german grammar that could not be touched upon in the present book. I believe that the day is not very far distant when English students will take a much more lively interest 'ih the study of their own and the other Germanic languages (especially German and Old Norse) than has hitherto been the case. And if this little book should contribute anything towards furthering the cause, it will amply have fulfilled its purpose.

The most accessible, well-balanced history of the German language available! No comparable work is available in English or German that gives readers an adequate foundation in the methods, goals, and results of historical-comparative linguistics as they apply to the German language and its historical antecedents. Waterman’s monograph excels through its clear presentation of materials, the extensive use of charts and maps, and a well-organized bibliography. A wealth of examples documents a surprisingly broad review of German language issues.

This simple introduction to the history of the German language seeks to provide students who have some knowledge of modern German, but no knowledge either of its development or of linguistic theories, with a short account of the essential factors – chronological, geographical and linguistic – and their interrelation. The material is arranged in three parts. The first traces the history of the German language from its origins in Indo-European through the pre-documentary Germanic period and the Middle Ages to the present day. In the second part the development of the German vocabulary is described, including word formation, borrowing, and change in meaning; and the book concludes with a section on changes in sounds, grammatical forms, and syntax. Emphasis is placed on the development of the standard literary language in its historical and social context, while such topics as dialects and the relationship of German to other Germanic and European languages are treated very briefly as the need arises. The inclusion of maps, some specimen passages of German its early stages, suggestions for further reading after each chapter, and an extensive classified bibliography also contribute to making this a useful introduction to the subject and a reliable foundation for more advanced work.
