This book brings together new and original work by forty two of the world's
leading scholars of Indo-European comparative philology and linguistics
from around the world. It shows the breadth and the continuing liveliness
of enquiry in an area which over the last century and a half has opened
many unique windows on the civilizations of the ancient world. The volume
is a tribute to Anna Morpurgo Davies to mark her retirement as the Diebold
Professor of Comparative Philology at the University of Oxford.

The book's six parts are concerned with the early history of Indo-European
(Part I); language use, variation, and change in ancient Greece and
Anatolia (Parts II and III); the Indo-European languages of Western Europe,
including Latin, Welsh, and Anglo-Saxon (Part IV); the ancient Indo-Iranian
and Tocharian languages (Part V); and the history of Indo-European
linguistics (Part VI).

Indo-European Perspectives will interest scholars and students of
Indo-European philology, historical linguistics, classics, and the history
of the ancient world.

Linguistic Field(s): Historical Linguistics
Language Family(ies): Indo-European
