Title: Areal Diffusion and Genetic Inheritance: Problems in Comparative Linguistics
Edited By: Chia-jung Pan
R. M. W. Dixon
Description:

This book considers how and why forms and meanings of different languages
at different times may resemble one another. Its editors and authors aim to
explain and identify the relationship between areal diffusion and the
genetic development of languages, and to discover the means of
distinguishing what may cause one language to share the characteristics of
another.
