his Contributions to historical linguistics and speech acoustics
Hermann Grassmann's achievements in linguistics are well known and justly cele+brated. His work in acoustic phonetics is less well known but has been noted. What I propose to do in this paper is to provide for the non-linguist reader some background to Grassmann's work in both areas and then offer a brief speculation on how he was able to accomplish so much in these and other domains.
