Hearing what a story would likely have sounded like 5500 years ago. Telling Tales in Proto-Indo-European

In the 1990s, historical linguists created another short parable in reconstructed PIE [ Proto-Indo-European]. It is loosely based on a passage from the Rigveda, an ancient collection of Sanskrit hymns, in which a king beseeches the god Varuna to grant him a son. Here, Andrew Byrd recites his version of the “The King and the God” in PIE, based on the work of linguists Eric Hamp and the late Subhadra Kumar Sen.
