Subject: Career with Proto-Indo-European
Question: Hello, I was wondering, are there careers available for those who want to work with reconstructing Proto-Indo-European? I've seen texts written on the subject, studied it while receiving my BA in linguistics, but have never heard of careers in the field. Are they out there? How would one go about joining the research teams? Since obviously someone is doing work on the subject. Thank you!
Reply: In most cases you'd pursue a PhD in historical linguistics. Best of luck to you.
