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: Linguistic Theory and Complex Words
Subtitle: Nuuchahnulth Word Formation
Written By: John Stonham
URL: http://www.palgrave.com/products/Catalogue.aspx?is=1403903484
Description:

Nuuchahnulth is known for its striking use of word-formation and complex
inflection. This is the first book to provide a detailed description of the
complex morphology of the language, based on material gathered when it was
more viable than it is now. The description is embedded within a
broad-ranging theoretical discussion of interest to all morphologists. It
will provide an essential tool for researchers in Nuuchahnulth and related
languages, in Wakashan in general and in Native American Studies.
