The 2,800 titles in the “e-ditions” program can be purchased individually as PDF eBooks or as hardcover reprint (“print-on-demand”) editions via the “Available from De Gruyter” link above. They are also available to institutions in ten separate subject-area packages that reflect the entire spectrum of the Press’s catalog. More about the E-ditions Program »

The treatment has the precision and the sureness of touch which recommend all the books of the author.—J. Vendryes, Revue celtique

Professor Pedersen possesses the happy faculty of setting forth the most complicated subjects in a clear, precise, and easily comprehensible manner. From what is apparently the driest material imaginable he manages to extract great interest through the cultural and historical point of view from which all his investigation starts… The style is lively, varied, full of living pictures, often of striking effect… The work will contribute to Professor Pedersen’s renown as one of the leaders of his science; it shows him as a distinguished teacher and as an author full of temperament. It will be a splendid guide.—Kristoffer Nyrop, Politikens Kronik

M. H. Pedersen has described the present status of linguistics with the richness of information and the mastery of the subject which would be expected of him.—A. Meillet, Bulletin de la societe de linguistique de Paris
