Publisher Synopsis

"If you ever thought about teaching an undergraduate introduction to Indo-European linguistics and had gotten so far in your planning as to examine the available course-books, you would have been in for a nasty surprise. Prior to 2004 there was no suitable book available ... Finally, there is a reliable, engaging and accessible presentation of the communis opinio. And there are even exercises! ... Fortson has produced an excellent book that fulfills its goals admirably. I hope it will inspire a renaissance of Indo-European linguistics in English speaking countries." Journal of the American Oriental Society "The perfect book for an introductory Indo-European course, lively and engaging throughout, yet detailed, accurate, and authoritative. The hands-on exercises at the end of each chapter are a unique and valuable feature." Jay Jasanoff, Harvard University "This is an excellent introduction to Proto-Indo-European and its study. Both the chapters on various aspects of PIE grammar and those describing the various Indo-European branches are masterly precis of their subjects. As a Tocharianist I'm pleased to see that all branches of Indo-European are given the same thoughtful, substantial treatment. Both novices and the experienced Indo-Europeanists will read this book with profit; more than one of the latter group will wish he had written himself." Douglas Q. Adams, University of Idaho "I would like to conclude by stressing that this is an excellent textbook. I have taught from it, and the students in my class not only learned a great deal from it, they also seemed to enjoy the book almost as much as I did." Bryn Mawr Read more...
