Early Indo-European Texts
The texts are independent, and may be read in any sequence.
Mastery of them should make possible the reading of any edited Hittite texts.
Note: there are great disparities in capability among personal computers in contemporary use. Unfortunately,
support for Unicode® and/or the
repertoire of fonts installed on your personal computer cannot be detected by a web server! Accordingly,
we have prepared multiple versions of each text; this set of texts is for systems/browsers
with Unicode support and fonts spanning the Unicode 3 character set relevant to (Romanized) Hittite.
(You may switch to other versions via Option links, below, and links in the upper-left margin of any page.)
