Abstract:

This book reconciles what is known of the Proto-Indo-European verbal
system with the evidence of Hittite and the other early Anatolian
languages.

The decipherment of Hittite in 1917 and the recognition that it was an
Indo-European language had dramatic consequences for conceptions of
the Indo-European parent language. For most of the twentieth century,
the 'disconnects' between Hittite and the other early languages such
as Sanskrit and Greek have been the subject of research, scholars
finally realizing that the question was not whether the conventional
picture of the parent language should be modified to account for the
facts of Hittite, but how.

After investigating the subject for twenty-five years, Professor
Jasanoff proposes a resolution of the problem that is the most
thorough and systematic yet published. In this outstanding book he
puts forward a new and revolutionary model of the Proto-Indo-European
verbal system which will have a profound impact on the study of the
Indo-European family of languages. It also represents a significant
advance in the understanding of the history of Indo-European.
