Indo-European research studies
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 furthr aim at disclosing the culture, ethnicity and homeland of the speakers of the Indo-European proto-language.
The programme of Indo-European Studies is research-based insofar as the teachers contribute to the research within the subjects they are teaching, regularly including the students in their own ongoing research
