Title: From Proto-Indo-European to Proto-Germanic
Written By: Donald A. Ringe
URL: http://www.oup.com/uk/catalogue/?ci=9780199284139
Series Title: A Linguistic History of English
Description:

This book is the first since 1897 to describe the earliest reconstructable
stages of the prehistory of English. It outlines the grammar of
Proto-Indo-European, considers the changes by which one dialect of that
prehistoric language developed into Proto-Germanic, and provides a detailed
account of the grammar of Proto-Germanic. The first volume in Don Ringe's A
Linguistic History of English will be of central interest to all scholars
and students of comparative Indo-European and Germanic linguistics, the
history of English, and historical linguists.
