This crititcal survey of the theory and methodology of Indo-European linguistics ranges from its origins in the 18th century to the present day. It surveys the current status of Indo-European linguistics by making material accessible and by re-examinig the outlines of older theories.

This analysis shows the development of various problems and approaches in historical perspective as well as applying and exploring current linguistic findings and theory in the area
