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: Italian Syntax and Universal Grammar
Written By: Guglielmo Cinque
URL: http://us.cambridge.org/titles/catalogue.asp?isbn=9780521022927
Series Title: Cambridge Studies in Linguistics, 77
Description:

Guglielmo Cinque is one of the world's leading theoretical syntacticians,
and is particularly known for his application of recent theory to the
analysis of Italian. This volume brings together ten of Professor Cinque's
essays, some of which are published here for the first time, and some of
which have not hitherto been easily available. They explore a wide range of
aspects of Italian syntax, including the grammar of relative and
'pseudo-relative' clauses in the complement of perception verbs, impersonal
si constructions, and the position and argument structure of adjectives in
the noun phrase. The volume considers the implications of Cinque's work on
Italian syntax for generative grammar more broadly, and compares Italian
with the syntax of other Romance and also Germanic languages. It will be
welcomed by all those working on Italian syntax, and on theoretical syntax
generally.
