RT: Indo-European ▶ http://goo.gl/cDNrkm ◀ is the best-studied #language family in the world. For much of the past 200 years more #scholars have worked on the comparative #philology of #IndoEuropean than on all the other areas of #linguistics put together. We know more about the #history and relationships of the Indo-European #languages than about any other group of languages.ResponderEliminar
