Modern Indo-European

Our Work

Promoting North-West Indo-European as a modern language since 2005, with continuous reference to the parent Late Proto-Indo-European language.
These are some of our main publications:
Go to Guidebook


Our main work to date is the self-learning course for Modern Indo-European learners, a guidebook divided into fun lessons, carefully designed to introduce the reader to the difficult aspects of the Late Proto-Indo-European grammar, while offering at the same time interesting notes of culture and language usage.

Go to Syntax


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.

Go to Lexicon


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.

Go to Culture


A Song of Sheep and Horses is a series of books which includes linguistic, archaeological and genetic information apart from supplementary illustrations, dealing with the reconstructed Indo-European proto-languages, their culture and homelands, and their language contacts, apart from related ancestral and sister languages

About Us

The revival of North-West Indo-European
Reviving the ancestor of Italo-Celtic, Germanic & Balto-Slavic

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
