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: Papers in Austronesian Linguistics NO.3.
Edited By: Hein Steinhauer
Description:

This volume deals with morphological problems in non-Oceanic Malayo-Polynesian languages. The papers were contributions to the sixth International Conference on Austronesian Linguistics (Honolulu, 1991). Focus, or what remains of it, is the topic of papers by D.G. Arms (Sindangan Subanan), P.R. Kroeger (Kimaragang Dusun), Beatrice Clayre (Borneo languages) and R. van der Berg and N. P. Himmelmann (languages of Sulawesi). Donna Evans discusses causatives (Kaili), Barbara Friberg person marking (in Konjo), U. Sirk verbal suffixes (western Indonesian languages). Papers by A. van Engelenhoven and H. Steinhauer concern syncronic metathesis in the Central Malayo-Polynesian languages (Letinese and Dawanese).
