The present work gives a critical survey of all the verbs that may have existed in Proto-Iranian as deduced from the attested Iranian descendants and their archaic sister language, Sanskrit. This is accompanied by an analysis of the morphology and assessment of the provenance. The Iranian group within the Indo-European language family consists of languages that were and are still spoken in Western and Central Asia, among which Persian, Balochi, Kurdish, Pashto, Shughni and Ossetic are the best known today, and Avestan, Old and Middle Persian, Parthian, Bactrian, Khotanese, Sogdian and Choresmian in the past. This work aims to bridge the gap in knowledge that exists between Indo-Europeanists and scholars of Iranian languages with regard to each other's fields.

Review:

"C'est un très beau travail et je me réjouis qu'il soit enfin disponible dans forme de livre. Il est en tout point digne des Leiden Indo-European Etymological Series (IEED)," Prof. Jean Kellens
Chaire de Langues et religions indo-irannienes
Collège de France

'This is a very valuable guide to the Iranian verb, both for the book's uniqueness in filling a lacuna in the field, and for its intrinsic excellence. It should be of interest for not only Iranists, but also for Indo-Europeanists. The etyma are supported by a great wealth of material from diverse languages, with many interesting analyses, and rich, up-to-date, bibliographical support. While the book, as is inevitable with a work of this sort and scope, may occasionally invite variant views (and some additional entries), the overall comprehensiveness, reliability and utility of this very erudite opus is without question. Indeed, Johnny Cheung has given us a tome which is now indispensable for both advanced scholars and students.'
Professor Martin Schwartz, Iranian Studies, Near Eastern Deparment, University of California at Berkeley

Synopsis:

The Iranian group within the Indo-European language family consists of languages that were and are still spoken in Western and Central Asia, among which Persian, Balochi, Kurdish, Pashto, Shughni and Ossetic are the best known today and Avestan, Old and Middle Persian, Parthian, Bactrian, Khotanese, Sogdian and Chorasmian in the past. This work aims to bridge the apparent gap in knowledge that exists between Indo-Europeanists and scholars of Iranian languages with regard to each other's fields. The present work gives a critical survey of all the verbs that may have existed in Proto-Iranian as deduced from the attested Iranian descendants and their archaic sister language, Sanskrit. This is accompanied by an analysis of the morphology and assessment of the provenance.
