Linguistics Program's Andrew Byrd Discusses Proto-Indo-European Language with BBC Newsday

Just recently, the Linguistics Program's Andrew Byrd was interviewed by the BBC's Newsday radio series. The interview served to highlight Byrd's work studying the "Proto-Indo-European" language which dates back thousands of years. In the interview, Byrd gives listeners a glimpse of the language's history and a chance to hear the language given breath. 

A special thanks to the BBC World Service and The World Today as well as the College of Arts & Sciences and the Linguistics Program for making this podcast possible.
