Professor Szemerenyi's Einführung in die vergleichende Sprachwissenschaft, first published in 1970, remains the standard introduction to comparative Indo-European linguistics. Updated and revised for its English translation, it appears here in a new paperback format. The introductory section presents a general survey of the principles of diachronic-comparative linguistics, and the remainder of the book is a thorough and detailed analysis, according to those principles, of the phonological and morphological structure of the Indo-European group of languages. Each section of the book has a detailed bibliography, so that the student can progress from the general overview to a more detailed examination of particular topics.

`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
