BOUDA, Karl

BOUDA, Karl Ernst. Hamburg 10.2.1901 — Erlangen or Nürnberg (?) 31.7.1979. German Linguist and Caucasologist. Son of Karl Enoch Bouda and Karolina Völcker. PD 1936 Berlin. From 1942 pl. ao. (ord. 1950) Professor at Erlangen, until 1954. Later living in Nürnberg.

Bouda was a many-sided linguist, who worked on Caucasian, Basque and North-East Siberian languages with the hope of finding common features. Also included Dravidian and Burushaski in his comparisons. In his opinion Caucasian, Basque and Burushaski formed a “Macro-Caucasian” language family.
