Encyclopedia of Indo-European culture by J. P Mallory( Book )

12 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 556 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Encyclopedia of Indo-European Culture provides full, inclusive coverage of the major Indo-European language stocks and their origins. The Encyclopedia also includes numerous entries on archaeological cultures having some relationship to the origin and dispersal of Indo-European groups-as well as entries on some of the major issues in Indo- European cultural studies. There are two kinds of entries in the Encyclopedia of Indo-European Culture: a) those that are devoted to archaeology, culture, or the various Indo-European languages; and b) those that are devoted to the reconstruction of Proto-Indo-European words. With more than 700 entries, written by specialists from around the world, the Encyclopedia of Indo-European Culture has become an essential reference text in this field
The Oxford introduction to Proto Indo European and the Proto Indo European world by J. P Mallory( Book )

25 editions published between 1995 and 2009 in English and held by 320 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Our linguistic ancestors had used the wheel, were settled arable farmers, kept sheep and cattle, brewed beer, got married, made weapons, and had at least 27 verbs for the expression of strife. The subjects to which the authors devote chapters include fauna, flora, family and kinship, clothing and textiles, food and drink, space and time, emotions, mythology, religion, and the continuing quest to discover the Proto-Indo-European homeland."

A dictionary of Tocharian B by Douglas Q Adams( Book )

21 editions published between 1999 and 2013 in English and Indo-European and held by 118 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The second edition of 'A dictionary of tocharian B' includes substantially all Tocharian B words found in regularly published texts, as well as all those of the London and Paris collections published digitally, and a substantial number of the Berlin collection published digitally. The number of entries is more than twenty per cent greater than in the first edition. The overall approach is decidedly philological. All words except proper names are provided with example contexts. Each word is given in all its various attested morphological forms, in its variant spellings, and discussed semantically, syntactically, and etymologically. New to the second edition is the assignment, where possible, of the examples of the word's use to their exact chronological period. This dating provides the beginning of the study of the Tocharian B vocabulary on a historical basis. Included are also a reverse English-Tocharian B index and, another innovation to this edition, a general index verborum of Indo-European cognates
