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."

Subtitle: In relationship to other passive-reflexive verbal sytems and to the pu'al and hoph'al in particular
Written By: P.A. Siebesma

Since the study of M. Lambert about the niph'al in 1990, hardly anything new has been published on this verbal stem. This study offers a new approach of the niph'al in Biblical Hebrew. It is studied in relation to the other passive-reflexive verbals stems. The book also presents an overview of all verbal roots of which niph'al forms occur.
