Jay Jasanoff puts forward a revolutionary model of the Proto-Indo-European verbal system which will have a profound impact on the study of the Indo-European language family and marks a significant advance in the understanding of its history. The decipherment of Hittite in 1917 and the recognition that it was an Indo-European language had dramatic consequences for conceptions of the parent language. After decades of studying the 'disconnects' between Hittite and early languages such as Sanskrit and Greek, scholars finally realized that the question was not whether received ideas about the parent language should be modified to account for Hittite, but how. This book provides the answer.
