D. Gary Miller's The Oxford Gothic Grammar is an impressive volume which fills a void in Gothic studies. Not limiting itself to just morphological paradigms, the 692-page beautifully published opus dives headfirst into encompassing every aspect of Gothic studies, far exceeding the traditional grammars * Jean-Francois R. Mondon, Linguist List *
This comprehensive, authoritative, and thoroughly up-to-date volume is without equal. I wish I had such a resource when I was learning Gothic (and teaching it). * Wayne Harbert, Cornell University *
Not since the grammar of von der Gabelentz and Loebe of the first half of the 19th century has there been such a comprehensive account of the Gothic language. Of particular value are the emphasis on word-formation and syntax, and the generous bibliography. * Patrick Stiles, University College London *
This is massive and comprehensive. The patience and knowledge (in addition to first-rate organization of notes and records) is overwhelming: in the best neophilological tradition, with linguistic acumen. I'm truly impressed. Everything is there and it must be the definitive summation of what can be known about Gothic (and what will remain a mystery/question mark). Magisterial. * Dieter Wanner, Ohio State University *
