These are some of our main publications:
A Grammar of Modern Indo-European is a complete reference guide to a living Indo-European language. It contains a comprehensive description of Proto-Indo-European grammar, and offers an analysis of the complexities of the prehistoric language and its reconstruction from its descendant languages.
A Tentative Syntax of Modern Indo-European is a clear, complete and articulate guide for the advanced practical knowledge and usage of this living Indo-European language. It contains hundreds of common sentences and expressions, comprehending a large variety of usual situations and syntactic structures.
A complete and detailed Proto-Indo-European lexicon paired with English and Latin equivalences is provided in different useful formats for quick reference. Other publications in this category include Pokorny’s etymological dictionary, machine translation and automatic conjugator tools.
Published works include translations of the Greek New Testament, Latin and Sanskrit works, and traditional Proto-Indo-European texts, like Schleicher’s Fable, and the King & God Fable
Academia Prisca is an international, non-profit organization located in Europe, whose main mission is to promote the revival of the reconstructed Late Proto-Indo-European language, with a focus on North-West Indo-European language and culture. Having begun in 2004 as a personal project, it was founded in 2005 as the Dnghu Group, supported by the regional Government of Extremadura and other public economic agents. It reviewed its original aim (of merely promoting the language among university experts) to focus on the creation of an Indo-European language community. The group operates mainly online, and it is financed by a private Spanish education company, Academia Biblos. Its work has been publicly endorsed by professors from the University of Extremadura since its inception.
The best reconstructed aspect, with minor questions unsolved
Well-studied and with a solid foundation, but with certain controversies
A sizeable Europe's IE lexicon is available, but words for modern concepts are lacking
Only a handful of original expressions and short sentences can be reconstructed
Who are we?
Ask, discuss, collaborate, speak
