This set of lectures on language delivered at the Berlin Academy between 1820 and 1829, will give the reader a comprehensive overview of Humboldt's conceptual development. Originally designed for the general though interested public these essays are generally deemed to be more digestible than the famous Kawi-Introduction and will thus facilitate the access to the ideas of this outstanding scholar.
Contents: Eight lectures on language - Amongst others: On the comparative study of language and its relation to the different periods of language development - On the grammatical structure of the Chinese language - On the dual form.
