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."

Description:

The book describes the most important patterns for the analysis and creation of German derivations and compounds. Word formation patterns are viewed as rules belonging to the lexicon of a language that include all the systematic syntactic, semantic morphological and phonological information necessary for using complex words. The focus is on semantic patterns, which describe the possibilities of the semantic change of primary words from derivations and compounds.

Wolfgang Motsch works at the Institute for German Language, Mannheim, Germany.
