This book is a comprehensive comparison of Proto-Indo-European, in all its
stages of development and in all its aspects, with various other language
families of Northern Eurasia, the Middle East, and the Indian subcontinent
in an attempt to show that Proto-Indo-European is not genetically isolated
but, rather, belongs to a larger linguistic grouping, namely, the Nostratic

For the first time, all aspects of the putative proto-language are
discussed in detail: phonology, morphology, vocabulary, syntax, and
homelands. Copious references are given throughout to the relevant
literature, and the book ends with an English-Nostratic index. Also for the
first time, a sizable amount of material has been included from
Eskimo-Aleut and Chukchi-Kamchatkan. This book is, therefore, the most
important contribution to Nostratic linguistics to appear to date.

All those interested in Indo-European comparative/historical linguistics,
archaeology, and distant linguistic comparison.

Nostratic Macrofamily; Distant linguistic comparison; Indo-European
comparative/historical linguistics; Linguistic paleontology
