Abstract:

This edition constitutes a reprint of Niels Ege’s English translation of
Rasmus Rask’s prize essay of 1818, which appeared as volume XXVI in the
Travaux du Cercle Linguistique de Copenhague in 1993. The prize essay was
published in Danish in 1818. In contrast to other works by Rask, notably his
introduction to the study of Icelandic, it was never reissued until Louis
Hjelmslev published a corrected version in Danish as part of his edition of
Rask’s selected works. While Rask lived, a substantial part of the book was
translated into German. The present work is, however, the only translation of
the work into English and indeed into any other language. It is to be hoped
that the field of the history of linguistics will hereby receive a new impetus
to scrutinize the early beginnings of Indo-European scholarship. But, just as
importantly, the translation of this work of genius reveals that even if
details in the substantial treatment of the various branches of language have
now been superseded, the theoretical parts of the book are still worth reading
by all linguists for their own sake.
