Industry Reviews

`draws confidently on data from all of the Indo-European branches.' Sino-Platonic Papers No.107, Sept. 2000. `... this work is now so much more widely accessible ... it will truly be a fitting memorial to Oswald Szemerenyi' J. H. W. Penney, Kratylos Edition 44 1999 `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 and conciseness.' J. C. Wright, Bulletin of the School of Oriental and African Studies
