Update on ‘The Indo-European Languages’

Much of the content on this website revolves around the Proto-Indo-Europeans and their descendant peoples, the Indo-Europeans. A couple of months ago I made it a priority to write a few introductionary articles on the Proto-Indo-Europeans themselves, their mythology and their languages, to make the topic more accessible and understandable to a wider audience.

Now, however, I’m wanting to expand on some of these articles, starting with The Indo-European Language Family:

I chose to expand on this particular article first, because it offers the easiest and most obvious connection between us and our modern languages and the past. Having started with a short description of the (now dead) Anatolian languages, I will continuously be adding more branches of the Indo-European family tree over the upcoming weeks and months. These descriptions will feature information about the initial distribution, the dispersal, and the history of each individual group, without getting too deep into linguistic differences.

So all together there should be a substantial amount of content added that you will all hopefully enjoy!

  1. I am fascinated by this topic. I recently found out that the word Ank in Proto-Indo-European means to bend. It evolved into the word for Angle in Germanic for the tribe and their fish-hook shaped peninsula where they lived in Germany, and then when they moved to England this word for Angle became English. Anyway – here I did a post about it…I hope you like it 🙂 https://contentcatnip.com/2020/09/22/ancient-words-of-the-day-anglii-angle-ankle/
