Leibniz y la lengua vasca

Abstract : In the field of Basque studies, there has always been a marked tendency to quote and comment the works by any author referring to the Basque language no matter how trifling or trivial said reference may have been. In this respect, it is quite surprising that the research on Basque carried out by such an important figure as Leibniz be still virtually unknown to us. The great German thinker spent nearly thirty years gathering different opinions and materials on Basque and, although the apathy of his correspondents notably prevented him to materialise his projects, his conclusions were accurate in almost every respect. Thus, for example, Leibniz talked about the disparity between Basque and the rest of known languages (thus particularly contravening the incipient Basque-Celtic theories); about the language's past larger geographical spreading; about the unity of the language spoken by the Basques from both sides of the Pyrenees; etc. The main goal of this paper is to fill what we consider an important gap in the Basque language historiography.
