JOHANN HEINRICH HÜBSCHMANN
In the history of linguistics, the beginning of the 19th century was marked by the foundation of historical-comparative linguistics. From the very beginning of the foundation of this method, the origin and kinship of the Armenian language has been the focus of linguists’ attention. German scientists have made a great contribution to this field, especially at its beginning. Heinrich Hübschmann holds a special place among them.
Hübschmann was born on July 1, 1848 in Erfurt. He studied Oriental philology at Jena, Tübingen, Leipzig, and Münich, in 1876 he became professor of Iranian languages at Leipzig, and in 1877 professor of comparative philology at Strasbourg.
