“A Grammar of Modern Indo-European, Third Edition”: Price Policy Change, New File Formarts and Automatic Translations
Because of some complaints about the high price of the new printed edition of A Grammar of Modern Indo-European, we have reduced it to the minimum possible for sales in Amazon, as some of you have already noticed, judging from the increase in sales.
The previous price was necessary to include CreateSpace’s traditional distribution service, as already explained, but we have to agree that a 50% increase in price is excessive for a ‘service’ whose conditions and benefits remain mostly unknown to us (and to most publishers in Europe).
Consequently, we will strive to do the promotion and traditional distribution job ourselves, although it will probably remain a book for online sale, because of its continuously developing nature.
Apart from that, we are still adding new formats to read and download this new edition of the grammar: the MOBI format for Kindle and other reading devices is already available, and we are going to release CHM files for download, WebHelp and FlashHelp for online reading soon.
Also, automatic translations of the book will be made available, depending on the time we can dedicate to the task of translating and publishing the translations in different formats.
In the near future, apart from the planned short learning course and the Modern Indo-European syntax, it is also planned to develop a comprehensive dictionary-translator with all available information from the Proto-Indo-European lexicon, and with automatic translations from other languages.
