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: An Introduction to Classical Hebrew
Written By: D. Vance
URL: http://www.brill.nl/default.aspx?partid=10&pid=18092
Description:

This grammar introduces undergraduate and graduate students to the
essentials of classical Hebrew. It begins with the simple and regular
elements of the language and proceeds to the complex and irregular,
frequently referencing the historical development of Hebrew. Extensive
explanations of elements in English prepare students for the discussion of
the corresponding Hebrew element. Through the course of the text, the
reader will translate the book of Ruth as well as other biblical and
nonbiblical texts, learning particular skills in reading both the entire
Hebrew Bible and the later sixth-century Hebrew material, such as the
Lachish Letter. Accomplished students of this text will be prepared to
progress to advanced study of Hebrew grammar and exegesis of the Hebrew Bible.
