2013. №6, 115-136


The new handbook of Leonarg Herzenberg «Brief introduction in Indo-European linguistics», and also the second editions of the books of Robert S.P. Beekes and Michael Meier-Brügger, are reviewed. Author pays a special attention to the exposition of axioms of comparative linguistics, as well as to the disputable question of Indo-European linguistics: the laryngeal theory, the quantity of rows of velar stops, and the Ablaut and accent nominal and verbal paradigms. The manner of presentation of these materials to the students is investigated.
