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 family.

In this special Prometheus edition, the language of the Engineers is fully analysed with texts from the original script, and its features are explained as another Proto-Indo-European dialect, relating it to its most likely source: the Late Indo-European branch. An essential book for fans of the fiction universe shared by Prometheus, Alien, Predator and Terminator franchises.

If you are a member of a public or private institution related to higher education or research, or a member of the online or printed media, you can ask for a donation of one or more printed copies of this book (at contact@dnghu.org), 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.
