Tocharian and Indo-European Studies 20

The most diverse and comprehensive treatment of the relationships between ancient Tocharian A and B and other Indo-European languages.

Studying now-extinct languages from the first millennium, early twentieth-century archaeologists discovered previously unknown Tocharian A and Tocharian B writings on Buddhist manuscripts near northwest China. Tocharian and Indo-European Studies is the central publication for the study of these two closely related languages, focusing both on philological and linguistic approaches toward their relationship with other Indo-European languages.
