Title: The Basque Language
Written By: W.J.Van Eys
Series Title: LINCOM Gramatica 13
Description:

The Basque language, spoken in our days on both slopes of the Pyrenean
Mountains, stands as yet absolutely isolated,but belongs to the
agglutinative languages. There are six principal dialects, differing little
the one from the other, from a philological point of view, but differing
enough in their extreme varieties to make the one with difficulty
intelligible to the other. These dialects are, the Biscaian, the
Guipuzcoan, the Labourdin, the Souletin, the Navarrese, and the Low-Navarrese.

The original Basque alphabet is unknown, but it may possibly be found one
day in the so-called Keltiberian inscriptions. The Latin alphabet has been
adopted, with some slight differences.

Contents: The Basque Language, the alphabet, the phonetic system, the
definite article, the noun, the suffixes, the pronouns, the numerals, the
verb, the adverb and conjunctions, syntax, literal translation (Re-edition;
originally published 1883 in London; written in English).
