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 Aryan 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.
