Editorial Reviews

`Szemerenyi's standard introduction to the comparative philology of Indo-European has thankfully been made available in English. Beautifully set out, it represents the thoroughly revised and (especially in respect of bibliography) enlarged edition of 1990. ... a masterpiece of clarity andconciseness.'J. C. Wright, Bulletin of the School of Oriental and African Studies
