44

How did people speak thousands of years ago? How did their language sound? This app is as close to time travel as you can get.

HOW TO USE THE APP
- choose a sentence in order to get details on pronunciation and transliteration in a particular language.
- click on previous or later stages of a language to see how the language changed over time.
- click on the family tree to choose another language.
- click on the speaker icon for audio.
- click on a sentence of a particular language to get information on the historical development of the individual words in this language.
- [square brackets] indicate a phonetic transcription, /slashes/ a phonemic transcription.
- an asterisk (*) is used to indicate that no surviving texts are known in a language, so that the language has been reconstructed on the basis of later stages.

‘Vanished Voices: The Indo-European Phrase Book App’ is part of the research project ‘Splitting the Mother Tongue’ (2014-2020, funded by NWO, project number 276-70-026) by Alwin Kloekhorst (Leiden University).
