The Indo-European Controversy: Facts and Fallacies in Historical Linguistics

By Asya Pereltsvaig and Martin W. Lewis

This book "asserts that the origin and spread of languages must be examined primarily through the time-tested techniques of linguistic analysis, rather than those of evolutionary biology" and "defends traditional practices in historical linguistics while remaining open to new techniques, including computational methods" and "will appeal to readers interested in world history and world geography."

The Annual Review is devoted to research in the domain of first language acquisition, i.e., the process of acquiring command of a first language, and studies in which first language acquisition is compared to second language acquistion, as well as studies on language acquisition under abnormal conditions.
