A Grammar of Modern Indo-European is a complete reference guide to a living 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 from its descendant languages. Written in a
fresh and accessible style, and illustrated with maps, figures and tables, this book focusses on the real
patterns of use of Late Indo-European. The book is well organised and is filled with full, clear explanations
of areas of confusion and difficulty. It also contains an extensive English - Indo-European, Indo-European -
English vocabulary, as well as detailed etymological notes, designed to provide readers with an easy access
to the information they require.
An essential reference source for the student of Indo-European as a learned and living language, this work
will appeal to students of languages, classics, and the ancient world, as well as to general readers
interested in the history of language, and in speaking the direct ancestor of the world's largest language

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 -,

research or education field/s, and so on.
