Origins of the Greek verb

Insights into the prehistory of the verbal system of the Indo-European languages can be gained by formal reconstruction, textual analysis (philology) and cross-linguistic comparison (typology). Each of these strands of research has become highly specialised, so their methods and results need to be reintegrated into a coherent whole. By doing so, and focusing on Greek as a particularly rich and complex branch of the language family, this study will draw a new map of prehistoric developments, which can then serve as a basis for parallel work on other branches such as Germanic (with English) or Italic (Romance).
