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."


Book Information

   

Title: Lexical Semantics in LFG
Edited By: Miriam Butt
Tracy Holloway King
Series Title: Studies in Constraint-Based Lexicalism
Description:

Available for the first time in years, Lexical Semantics in LFG is a
reissue of the groundbreaking "Papers in Lexical Functional Grammar." It
spans a diverse range of topics, including Italian unaccusatives,
Malayalam causatives, derived nominals, resultatives, and non-nominative
subjects in Icelandic. With its emphasis on representations of lexical
semantic information that allow operations on predicate-argument relations
and grammatical relations to be independent of structural configurations,
the text will be of interest to both scholars and students of linguistics.
