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 Meaning, Truth Conditions and Relevance
Written By: Corinne Iten
URL: http://www.palgrave.com/products/Catalogue.aspx?is=0333995732
Series Title: Palgrave Studies in Pragmatics, Language and Cognition
Description:

The main argument of this book is that the notion of truth plays no role in
speaker-hearers' interpretation of linguistic utterances and that it is not
needed for theoretical accounts of linguistic meaning either. The
theoretical argument is developed in the first part, while the second part
supports it with cognitive relevance-theoretic, rather than truth-based,
analyses of the 'concessive' expressions but, although and even if.
