The Indo-European languages are a family of several hundred languages and dialects (443 according to estimates), including most of the major languages of Europe, as well as many in West, Central and Southern Asia. Contemporary languages in this family include Hindi, Bengali, German, English, Portuguese, Russian, Spanish (each with more than 100 million native speakers), as well as numerous smaller national or minority languages. Indo-European is the largest family of languages in the world today, with its languages spoken by approximately 3 billion native speakers; the second largest family of tongues is Sino-Tibetan.

This comprehensive reference explores the way in which different cultures use language and the major features of phonology, morphology, syntax and lexicon of the Indo-European languages family
