This textbook on Indo-European Linguistics is designed as an
introduction to the field. It presents current topics and questions in
Indo-European linguistics in a clear and informative manner. This
translation is based on the 8th edition of the work first published by
Hans Krahe (6th edition 1985) and it takes account of more recent
research. While Krahe only considered phonology and morphology, the
textbook also includes a comprehensive account of syntax and
lexis. Manfred Mayrhofer assisted with the section of phonology;
Matthias Fritz wrote the section on syntax and provided support for
the project as a whole.
