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."

Description:

This readable introductory textbook presents a concise survey of corpus
linguistics. The first section of the book introduces the key concepts in
corpus linguistics and provides a brief history of the discipline. The

linguistics can advance our study of words and meaning, the benefits of
studying the corpora, and how meaning can best be conceptualised.
Explaining corpus linguistics in easy to understand terms, and including a
glossary and suggestions for further reading, this book will be useful to
students trying to get a grasp on this subject.
