This is the main category of the Proto-Germanic language, represented in Wiktionary by the code gem-pro. It is the reconstructed ancestor of all Germanic languages, written in Latin script.

Proto-Germanic is a hypothetical language. Words and roots in Proto-Germanic are not directly attested in any written works, but have been reconstructed through the comparative method, which finds regular similarities between languages that cannot be explained by coincidence or word-borrowing, and extrapolates ancient forms from these similarities.

According to our criteria for inclusion, Proto-Germanic should not be present in entries in the main namespace, but may be added to the Appendix: namespace.

Please see Wiktionary:About Proto-Germanic for considerations about Proto-Germanic entries.
