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."

Description:

Terry utilizes principles of discourse analysis, cultural anthropology, and biblical studies to analyze this New Testament text. For his analysis, he draws on concepts of text organization from the work of Robert E. Longacre and Kenneth L. Pike. This study demonstrates that discourse analysis is and important tool for the study of texts, even ancient ones. Dr. Terry has formal training in both biblical studies and discourse analysis and has had field experience among the Navajos.
