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: Japanese/Korean Linguistics Volume 9
Edited By: Mineharu Nakayama
Charles J Quinn
Description:

Research on Japanese and Korean linguistics has been quite sparse. Yet from the research available, many linguists agree that Japanese and Korean are typologically quite similar, so a linguistic phenomenon in one often has a counterpart in the other. This similarity has encouraged further study of one language in the hopes of extrapolating the findings to the other language. This volume contributes to the expansion of advanced linguistic studies in both Japanese and Korean by juxtaposing recent research performed on both languages. Through such methods as discourse analysis, contrastive linguistic analysis, and the cognitive approach, contributors discuss Japanese and Korean phonetic, syntactic, and semantic structural similarities. While some papers explore the historical roots of Japanese linguistics and its impact on present-day Japanese and Korean, others investigate the languages' vowel and consonant systems. The diversity of topics presented is apparent in contributors' discussion of the importance of syllable structure, difficulties in possession construction, acquisition of passive construction in Japanese, and the influence of sentence structure on the interpretation of Korean words.
