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."

Title: Coursebook in Feature Geometry
Written By: John Newman
Series Title: LINCOM Coursebooks in Linguistics 02
Description:

The Coursebook in Feature Geometry is an undergraduate course introducing students to current phonology through a sustained use of the Feature
Geometry framework. It is written as a coherent, accessible, and well-illustrated introduction to the key ideas of Feature Geometry, focusing on rules of assimilation. In its 20 units and 40 exercises, it takes the reader step-by-step through the representational devices of
Feature Geometry.

The Coursebook attempts to present the core ideas of Feature Geometry in a unified way, rather than attempting to incorporate the (considerable) debate concerning almost every aspect of the theory.

The version of Feature Geometry underlying the Coursebook is basically that found in Sagey’s The Representation of features in non-linear phonology (1990), revised in accordance with the claims of Lahiri and Evans’ 1991 article on Palatalization and coronality.

The author is Senior Lecturer in the Department of Linguistics and Second
Language Teaching, Massey University, New Zealand. The author has a PhD in linguistics from the University of California at San Diego.
