My two cents (on lessons and on IE)

All the posts regarding lessons made me dust off the two that I had
sitting around and update them. They are very basic, and can be found

Any comments are appreciated.

On the subject of Indo-European and on the language family project,
those who aren't aware of it may want to find a copy of Carl Darling
Buck's Dictionary of Selected Synonyms in the Principal Indo-European
Languages. According to the copyright page, it was originally
published in 1949. U Chicago published a paperback edition with four
original pages per page in 1988. I found it in a B&N or Borders (I
forget which) about 4 years ago. The U Chicago ISBN is 0226079376.

It is a fun reference. The words are divided into semantic groups, so
Chapter 1 is on the Physical World and Chapter 2 on Mankind, etc. At
the beginning of each entry he gives a list of words in various IE
languages and then proceeds to talk about their etymology. Fun stuff.
I find it useful for creating vocabulary, even though Kelen is in no
way IE based or derived.
