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:

Kabba is a Central-Sudanic language of the West-Sara group; it is spoken by
approximately 80,000 people in the Central African Republic. The Kabba are
warriors, agriculturalists, hunters and fishermen. They migrated from
East-Africa to the C.A.R. during civil upheavals and slave trade. The Kabba
fought alongside the French in Europe and in Indo-China. The C.A.R., which
was previously called Ubangi-Shari, gained its independence from France in
1960.
