Arbeitstagung on the Indo-European Verb

Indogermanische Gesellschaft
Société des Études Indo-Européennes
Society for Indo-European Studies

The major scholarly organization that supports Indo-European studies worldwide is the “Indogermanische Gesellschaft” (= Society for Indo-European Studies, Société des études indo-européennes). Periodically, institutions around the world host “workshops” (“Arbeitstagungen”) on specific topics, sponsored by the Gesellschaft. In September of 2010, the UCLA Program in Indo-European Studies hosted such a workshop, on the topic of “The Indo-European Verb”, with presentations by 38 scholars over the course of three days. The proceedings of the workshop, containing published versions of most of the presentations, were published as the volume The Indo-European Verb (2012), edited by H. Craig Melchert (Professor Emeritus, Department of Linguistics and Program in Indo-European Studies).
