In Lecture 9, the Indo-European comparative syntax of Berthold Delbrück and Karl Brugmann in introduced,and the psychological approach to language (Völkerpsychologie) of Heymann Steinthal and Hermann Paul is discussed. The chapter illustrates (Lectures 9–11) various types of syntactic assimilation (of number, gender, case, the relative pronoun, mood, tense), and (Lecture 12) of syntactic interference by association of ideas, and reviews (Lectures 12–13) three recent introductions to syntax (especially that of Wilhelm Kroll). The general introduction concludes with a few pages on the parts of speech and the permeable boundaries between them (verbs from nouns, and nouns from verbs).

Keywords:   assimilation, Karl Brugmann, comparative syntax, Berthold Delbrück, Indo-European, interference, Wilhelm Kroll, parts of speech, Hermann Paul, Heymann Steinthal
