One of the most detailed and comprehensive studies of Indo-European phonology, The Sound of Indo-European brings together leading linguists working in Indo-European studies to examine both the broadest definitions of the group—from minute phonetics to abstract levels of phonemics centering on all varieties of Indo-European—and individual branches, with contributions on Celtic, Anatolian, Germanic, Indo-Iranian, Italic, Armenian, and even Euphratic.
