Description

History of the European Languages; Or, Researches into the Affinities of the Teutonic, Greek, Celtic, Sclavonic, and Indian Nations. Vol. 2 is a wonderful linguist centric resource written by Alexander Murray. In his vast career, Murray was a minister, philologist, and linguist with a professorship at the University of Edinburgh in the language department. This book is widely considered his greatest work and a culmination of not only his career, but also all of his linguist knowledge to date.

This series covers a wide range of languages, their features, and the history behind the societies in which these languages originated and grew over time. In this particular volume, Murray explores the ancient history of Greece, Scythia, Persia, and India and how these histories relate to the history of the Greek and Latin languages. Murray uses this book as one of the first to explore languages that were previously overlooked by books written on linguistics such as Celtic languages and Sanscrit, Persic, and Slavonic languages. Finally, this book includes Murray's discussion on Horne Tooke as a philologist and a biography on Murray himself for the readers edification.

History of the European Languages; Or, Researches into the Affinities of the Teutonic, Greek, Celtic, Sclavonic, and Indian Nations. Vol. 2 stands out as one of the first guides on a variety of languages previously overlooked by other linguists. Alexander Murray's life work, this book represents a lifetime achievement and dedication to languages that can now be utilized by future linguists. This book is an intriguing read for individuals interested in languages, history, and world cultures.
