I have a list of <1500 roots from PIE -- it's not online, but I'd be happy to give you an ASCII file in whatever format you'd like. Since it's based on PIE, there's quite a bit of concept overlap -- you could probably distill it down to less that 1000. It's better to feed the goat than it is today, John
