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: The Uralic Languages
Edited By: Daniel Abondolo
Description:

This book provides a unique survey of individual Uralic languages and sub-groupings from Finnish to Selkup and Obugrian to Samoyedic. Giving both an overview and then detailed analyses of the Uralic languages, the volume describes their history and development as well as focusing on their linguistic structure. Each chapter is similarly-structured, designed for comparative study and including phonology, morphology, syntax, lexicon and sample text where available. Each includes numerous tables to support and illustrate the text and bibliographies of the major references in each language to aid further study.
