FINANCIAL REPORT OF THE LINGUISTIC INSTITUTE PRESENTED BY THE DIRECTOR
Introduction to the Language of the Veda. Mr. Edgerton.-Reading of selected hymns of the Rigveda, with grammatical and exegetical analysis. Some knowledge of Sanskrit is a prerequisite. Students should procure A. A. Macdonell, Vedic Grammar for Students, Oxford (Clarendon), 1916, and A. Hillebrandt, Vedachrestomathie, Berlin (Wiedmannsche Buchhandlung), 1885. The last named, and perhaps both books, will have to be ordered from Europe in advance; prospective students who may be unable to secure Hillebrandt will please communicate directly with the instructor.
Introduction to the Avestan Language and Literature. Mr. Jackson.-Five hours a week; Mon. and Wed., 3-5; Fri., 3-4. This course is intended primarily for beginners who are taking or have taken Sanskrit or equivalent languages; but it may include also advanced students who have had some Avestan and desire to review or pursue the subject further along special lines to be suggested. Text-books: Jackson, Avesta Grammar; Jackson, Avesta Reader. (Both of these may be obtained through the Columbia University Press, New York.)
Comparative Grammar of Greek and Latin. Mr. Kent.-An introduction to Indo-European comparative grammar, with especial reference to the classical languages. A knowledge of Greek and Latin is assumed. Students must be able to read scientific German and French. Required books: M. Niedermann, Outlines of Latin Phonetics, edited by Strong and Stewart, New York (Dutton), 1910; J. Wright, Comparative Grammar of the Greek Language, New York (Oxford University Press), 1912.
Beginning Greek for Linguists. Mr. Bolling.-The course is planned for those interested in Linguistics who have so far not availed themselves of the opportunities to acquire a knowledge of Greek. It will endeavor to lead to some facility in reading the language of the Homeric Poems, but attention will also be given to tracing the development of the language from Indo-European. Students should provide themselves with T. D. Seymour, First Six Books of the Iliad, Boston (Ginn and Company), Revised Edition, and Hermann Hirt, Handbuch der griechischen Laut- und Formenlehre2, Heidelberg (Carl Winters' Universitätsbuchhandlung), 1912. Prerequisite: a reading knowledge of
Greek Dialects. Mr. Petersen.-A study of the characteristics of the Greek dialects, their relation to each other, and the light shed by
