  author={Erik K{\"o}rner},
The work of Carl Wilhelm Friedrich von Schlegel was important for the development of comparative-historical as well as typological linguistics in the 19th century. His study of Sanskrit and related languages influenced many other linguists and undoubtedly earned him a place among the ‘founding fathers’ of comparative Indo-European grammar.
