Origin of indo-germanic
- From Indo- + Germanic, relating to the two geographically most extreme subgroupings, the Indo-Aryan and the Germanic languages. (When this term was coined, the Celtic languages were not yet considered Indo-European, and the Tocharian languages were not yet discovered.) While the classification is considered obsolete and the term fell out of use, it was adopted into some languages, cf. German indogermanisch.
