Table of Contents
“Collinge has provided all students and scholars in the many branches of Indo-European studies with a useful reference tool and deserves our gratitude.”
“[D]estined to become an indispensable tool on the desk of every Indo-Europeanist, Historical Linguist, and Linguistic Historian [...]. It records in admirably concise fashion the original content, subsequent revision and current scholarly assessment of those well-known rules in historical linguistics which are traditionally termed 'laws'.”
“Collinge dissipates the conventional myth of orthodoxy commonly associated with these laws: he shows how often these were formulated by their propounders as tentative generalizations, and how they were attacked or revised. As such, this book is a fitting tribute to two centuries of comparative scholarship — a story, then, of "how the field of Indo-European was won".”
