This booklet is a broadcast model of my collage lectures; as a result, it omits insignificant information. From between features common to just one of many Baltic languages, purely the extra vital ones were discussed.

Quotations from my Lettische Grammatik are taken from the second one version which used to be released in Latvian in 1951 with a similar paragraph numbers.

I have thought of it pointless to copy the entire literature quoted in my Lettische Grammatik.
