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: Gradience in Grammar

Description:

This book represents the state of the art in the study of gradience in
grammar: the degree to which utterances are acceptable or grammatical, and
the relationship between acceptability and grammaticality. Part I seeks to
clarify the nature of gradience from the perspectives of phonology,
generative syntax, psycholinguistics, and sociolinguistics. Parts II and
III examine issues in phonology and syntax. Part IV considers long movement
from different methodological perspectives.

The data discussed comes from a wide range of languages and dialects, and
includes tone and stress patterns, word order variation, and question
formation. The book will interest linguists concerned with the
understanding of syntax, phonology, language variation and acquisition,
discourse, and the operations of language within the mind.
