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."


Book Information

   

Title: Historisches Deutsches Vornamenbuch (Historical Dictionary of German First Names)
Subtitle: Band 5: Nachträge und Korrekturen
Written By: Wilfried Seibicke
URL: http://www.degruyter.de/cont/fb/sp/detailEn.cfm?id=IS-9783110194586-1
Description:

The HDV is the first German dictionary of first names that documents the
occurrence and distribution of nearly every first name given in the German
language area since 1400, using evidence from numerous printed and other
sources. It provides a foundation for further research into the history of
German personal names and will also be of value in genealogical research.
The alphabetical entries give information on the meaning (etymology), use
and legitimacy of the names, together with their correct pronunciation and
spelling, give the patrons, and quote relevant literature.
