Item Code : HIPP3123Hippocrene Books. Includes 1,500 entries. 205 pages. Basque is an ancient language still spoken in regions of Northern Spain and Southwestern France--in and around the Pyrenees mountains. The origins of Basque are shrouded in the depths of time. Basque is not related to either Spanish or French, and the language has no apparent living relatives anywhere in the world. This makes Basque a fascinating study of human thought and culture. This book provides the reader with essential vocabulary and everyday sentences for use in communicating with the Basques in their own language. Basque spelling is relatively simple, and the pronunciation is not difficult for an English speaker.

Item Code : BRGT3121Includes 4 audio CD discs tapes ( = 2? hours), plus a 176-page textbook. The Basque language is spoken in three northern provinces of Spain, of which Bilbao is the most prominent city. Among the languages of Europe, the Basque language is unique, and belongs to no linguistic family despite efforts of scholars to find an affiliation. Those who have a basic command of Spanish or another Romance language may find the grammar and structure of the Basque language more understandable than those who know English only. The course has been translated into English with brief grammatical explanations. The text is divided into two parts: Part 1 contains 40 lessons that provide vocabulary, basic sentences, and grammar; Part 2 is devoted to complete charts of verb conjugations and declensions introduced in the preceding lessons. The greatest difficulty for the learner of the Basque language resides in the verbs, which express in their structures certain relationships not found or implied in English verbs.
