Philology | Part 1 | Indo-European Family of Languages

The study of origin and evolution of English language is an interesting one. The English language, like many of the European and Asian languages, have descended from the prehistoric Indo-European family of languages. This is understood best when the linguistic elements and structures present in these languages are closely analysed. A unique connection between the apparently different (and literally “world-apart”) languages makes us understand how these distinct languages have originated at one place and spread into multiple branches.
