Preface. The following Essay is a paper originally communicated, necessarily in abridged form, to the members of the Liverpool Literary and Philosophical Society, and is an attempt to give a clear account of present controversies regarding the origin, local and racial, of the Aryan stock. It makes no claim to original discoveries in the field of language; but it embodies the results of somewhat extensive reading, mainly in German authorities ; it gives a much fuller account than as yet exists in English of the latest Continental theories ; and it presses some conclusions and inferences to what appears to me their legitimate issue, more closely than has been done by previous writers. I give it separate publication, thinking it may be of use to other students in the field of language.
