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:

Combining theoretical and analytic tools from genre analysis and cognitive
linguistics, this book describes and explores the metaphors used by

professional communication and to draw attention to the importance of image
metaphor in a field where the visual is of paramount importance.

Cognitive Categories." For more information on ACL, please visit
