A Grammar of Modern Indo-European, Second Edition, is a complete reference guide to a modern,
revived Indo-European language. It contains a comprehensive description of Proto-Indo-European
grammar and offers an analysis of the complexities
of the prehistoric language and its reconstruction. Written in a fresh and accessible style, this book focuses
on the real patterns of use in a modern Europe's Indo-European language. The book is well organized and is filled
with full, clear explanations of areas of confusion and difficulty. It also includes an extensive bilingual
dictionary, etymological notes, and numbered paragraphs designed to provide readers easy access to the
information they require. An essential reference source for the learner and user of Indo-European,
this book will be the standard work for years to come.

If you are a member of a public or private institution related to higher education or research,
you can ask for a donation of one or
more printed copies of this book, even as a way to expedite proceedings,
like avoiding internal normative steps, as the formal justification of costs (and the payment paperwork) for new acquisitions in public libraries.
The decision to accept your request depends on different factors, such as our current stock,
your relationship with the institution (to support its actual interest in acquiring copies), the destination country
- shippings outside the US or Europe are expensive -,
the potential public awareness your institution offers (in prestige, number of members/readers, etc.), research or
education field/s, and so on. You can see a map of donations made until now.

We would like our main work to be translated into all European languages, so that everyone is able to
read it and learn MIE in their mother tongue.
A compensation of 100€ is offered to the main translator - or team of
translators - that translates the first 339 pages of the grammar into German (Hochdeutsch, Germany),
French (français standard, France), Spanish (español tradicional, España), or Italian (Standard Italian).
To offer the compensation, we have to assign the job to a translator or team of translators.
If you are interested in it, you must contact us first.
This is the profile we are looking for:
6. Latest Revisions of the Indo-European Grammar
Please share your corrections and reviews in the
appropriate forum thread
- We prefer translators who have the object language (or both, English and the object language) as mother tongue.
- We prefer professional translators, philologists, linguists, language professors or teachers over people
without such careers, although every application of those who prove proficiency in English will be reviewed.
- If the credentials are deemed insufficient, we might ask for a translation proof of some random pages
of the book, before taking a decision on the job assignment.
- Only one compensation will be given to each translation job, and we will assign the translation job
on a first-come, first-choice basis.
