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: Formal and Empirical Issues in Optimality Theoretic Syntax
Written By: Peter Sells
Description:

Formal and Empirical Issues in Optimality Theoretic Syntax is a collection of selected works which involve a new approach to syntax by bringing together Optimality Theory (OT) and Lexical-Functional Grammar (LFG). The volume's importance is precisely in this new approach, which differs greatly from other OT approaches to syntax. The book first develops formal foundations of Optimality Theory. The works within the volume then go on to analyze certain kinds of linguistic data, as well as more technical questions of the formal foundations, and of the utility of the approach in (industrial) natural language processing applications.
