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: Language Engineering
Written By: Hristo Georgiev
URL: http://www.continuumbooks.com
Description:

'Language Engineering' examines the processes involved in dictionary-making
using computational linguistics, including tagging, parsing,
spell-checking, lexical semantics and machine translation. The book
examines dictionary-building in English, but also includes appendices
applying natural language processing to French and German. This book is the
first detailed description of syntax and semantics using the C(C++)
programming language, and as such should be essential reading for
researchers in natural language processing and computational linguistics.
