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: Derivation and Explanation in the Minimalist Program
Edited By: Samuel David Epstein
T. Daniel Seely
URL: http://www.blackwellpublishing.com/book.asp?ref=0631227326
Description:

Derivation and Explanation in the Minimalist Program presents accessible,
cutting edge research on an enduring and fundamental question confronting
all linguistic inquiry – the respective roles of derivation and
representation.

The volume explores ways in which the Minimalist perspective on
transformational rules and their iterative application facilitates deeper
explanation than is possible within Government-Binding theory. Through
discussion of a wide range of phenomena, the majority of papers in the
volume present arguments in favor of derivational approaches, but
alternative, representational perspectives are also included.

Derivation and Explanation in the Minimalist Program is essential reading
for anyone interested in the foundational yet contemporary issue of
derivation versus representation and its relation to current Minimalist
method, analysis, and the quest for explanation.
