Schuchardt’s “Against the Neogrammarians”, both in the original German and translated into English…

Following up on the Vennemann “Phonetic analogy and conceptual analogy” and “Getting to know Schuchardt” posts, I now present Schuchardt’s own take on “phonetic analogy and conceptual analogy” in his own words. It is presented below both in the original German and in an English translation (made by Venneman and Wilbur in 1972).

Schuchardt, Hugo. 1885. Uber die Lautesetze: Gegen die Junggrammatiker. Berlin: Oppenheim. (Reprinted and translated as On Sound Laws: Against the Neogrammarians in Vennemann, Theo, and Terence H. Wilbur (Eds.), Schuchardt, the Neogrammarians, and the Transformational Theory of phonological change: Four essays. Frankfort, Athenaum.)
