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: Configurations: Essays on Structure and Interpretation
Edited By: Anna Maria Di Sciullo
URL: http://www.cascadilla.com/config.html
Description:

This collection of papers addresses several fundamental questions in syntax and morphology: how word structure and phrase structure relate to each other, the properties of a configurational theory of argument structure and adjunct structure, and the corre ct licensing requirements and conditions of grammar. The authors base their proposals on a wide range of evidence from Romance, Hellenic, West Germanic, Semitic, African and Amerindian languages. This book is a vital contribution to understanding the structural issues central to linguistic theory.¿
