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: Phonological Knowledge: Conceptual and Empirical Issues
Edited By: Noel Burton-Roberts
Gerard Docherty
Philip Carr
Description:

This volume concerns the nature, status, and acquisition of phonological knowledge, and its place in, or relation to, the theory of language and other capacities of mind. The contributions are written by well-known linguists and phonologists and address a wide range of interrelated issues: for example, whether phonology is 'different' from the rest of language; the implications of sign language; the nature-convention debate; and the data and methods of phonology. Of interest to researchers in phonology, linguistics, and psychology, the volume will also appeal to postgraduates and advanced undergraduates in linguistics.
