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: English Prosodic Morphology
Written By: Sabine Lappe
URL: http://www.springer.com/978-1-4020-6005-2
Description:

A comprehensive empirical analysis of the major truncatory patterns in
English. Complete with a critical evaluation of pertinent theories in the
light of known empirical facts. Contains a broad coverage of structural
aspects, including segmental, phonotactic, and suprasegmental.

Linguistic academics and speech therapists will find here the first modern
book-length empirical study and theoretical account of English truncatory
processes. On the basis of a corpus comprising some 3000 derivatives, the
book provides a systematic investigation of the structural properties of
six different patterns of English name truncation and word clipping. All
patterns are shown to be unique in terms of the structural requirements
that they impose on their outputs.
