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."

Series Title: Child Language and Child Development
Description:

This volume brings together a collection of empirical studies on
phonological acquisition and disorder of monolingual children speaking
different languages (English, German, Putonghua, Cantonese, Maltese,
Telugu, Colloquial Egyptian Arabic and Turkish) and bilingual children
speaking different language pairs (Spanish-English, Cantonese-English,
Mirpuri/Punjabi/Urdu-English, Welsh-English, Arabic-English and
Putonghua-Cantonese). The research findings provide much-needed baseline
information for clinical assessment and diagnosis as well as valuable
evidence concerning theories of language acquisition and the role of the
ambient language.
