"The IED project is supervised by Alexander Lubotsky and Robert Beekes. The aim of the project is threefold: 1. to compile etymological databases containing the inherited vocabulary of various Indo-European branches and to publish them on the Internet; 2. to create an Indo-European etymological database on the Internet; 3. to compile a new Indo-European etymological dictionary, which will replace Julius Pokorny''s Indogermanisches etymologisches Wörterbuch (Bern: Francke, 1959)."
