Indo-European Research

This section contains the latest original research articles related to the different academic fields the Dnghu Group is actively involved with.


Europa

The Proto-Indo-European Language Revival Project began as an entrepreneurial project for the University of Extremadura, which intended the revival and modern use of the reconstructed prehistorical language deemed the ancestor of most European languages and many languages spoken in Asia and the Americas.


The first contacts with Indo-European studies were disappointing, showing no support whatsoever for such a complete reconstruction of what is usually believed to be a rough and incomplete language system, usually seen as a scientifical hypothesis very difficult to prove within traditional linguistics, without known written records of some early PIE dialect. Like the findings and theories of Palaeontology, Psichology, History and theories on Black Holes and Stars, Historical Linguistics (and especially the Comparative Grammar) is not in the position to prove the common beliefs beyond doubt.


Prize in Entrepreneurial Innovation 2006 :: University of Extremadura and Cabinet of Young Iniciative

Following such difficult start, we decided to fund an informal group (later legally incorporated as Indo-European Language Association) to work on the complete practical reconstruction of the language and on its adoption as EU's national language. After the 2006 Prize in Innovation, we decided to undertake this task more seriously, releasing the project for the public.


Our aim is thus not only to offer the available works and findings on Proto-Indo-European, its ancestor and its dialects, but also to facilitate further research concerning the different theoretical aspects of the proto-language and its reconstruction.


To date, we are not offering any financial help for researchers. Should you be interested in publishing your Indo-European language research online with us, please visit europaiom.org.


If your works consist in books or texts without original scientific research, you could be interested in knowing more about Dnghu's publications.
