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: Argument Encoding in Japanese Conversation
Written By: Mitsuaki Shimojo
URL: http://www.palgrave.com/products/Catalogue.aspx?is=1403937052
Description:

Japanese is well known for its array of argument encoding types - but how
is speakers' choice of encoding types to be described? This book
investigates the encoding of subject and direct object in conversational
Japanese and attempts to explain Japanese argument encoding as a unified
system. Qualitative and quantitative analyses of a bank of conversation are
provided, with the emphasis on speakers' use of the encoding types rather
than their acceptability for given arguments.
