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:

The contributions to this volume focus on what language and language use
reveals about cognitive structure and underlying cognitive categories.
Wide-ranging and thought-provoking essays from linguists and psychologists
within this volume investigate the insights conceptual categorization can
give into the organization and structure of the mind and specific mental
states. Topics and linguistic phenomena discussed include narratives and
story telling, language development, figurative language, linguistic
categorization, linguistic relativity, and the linguistic coding of mental
states such as perceptions and beliefs. With contributions at the forefront
of current debate, this book will appeal to anyone with an interest in
language and the cognitive structures that support it.
