Historical-Comparative Linguistics

Young science, distant past

Here you will find information on the study of Historical-Comparative Linguistics (with lecture notes), on its local profile and networking, on current research, on the history of the subject in Basel, as well as many texts to read.

Since the subject 'Comparative Indo-European Linguistics' was abolished in 1983, Indo-European Studies can no longer be studied as a subject in Basel. The Indo-Germanic Library and its lecturer currently serve - among others - Classical Philology as support in linguistic matters with a program as rich as possible.
