Within Indo-European studies, the researchers are concerned with the nature of the reconstructed Indo-European proto-language and its development from into the individual Indo-European languages attested at later periods. The main focus is dedicated to the most significant sound changes, the development of the grammatical categories and the common vocabulary.
Relations between Indo-European and non-Indo-European languages in prehistoric Europe constitute a new field of research. By means of cross-disciplinary collaboration with researchers from adjacent fields, the researchers of Indo-European Studies in Copenhagen further aim at disclosing the culture, ethnicity and homeland of the speakers of the Indo-European proto-language.

The research in Indo-European takes place at the research centre Roots of Europe - Language, Culture and Migrations.
