Indo-European language

From Teflpedia

An Indo-European language is a member of the Indo-European language group of several hundred related languages and dialects, including English.[1]

Major language families subgroups include the Germanic languages, (e.g. English, German), the Romance languages (e.g. French, Latin, Spanish), the Slavic languages (e.g. Russian, Polish), and Indo-Iranian languages (e.g. Hindi, Persian, Turkish).

All are believed to have been developed language change from Proto-Indo-European (PIE).[2] Therefore they often share linguistic characteristics.

Note that not all European languages are Indo-European, and neither are all Indian languages.
