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: Explorations in Integrational Linguistics
Subtitle: Four essays on German, French, and Guaran
Edited By: Robin Sackmann
URL: http://www.benjamins.com/cgi-bin/t_bookview.cgi?bookid=CILT%20285
Series Title: Current Issues in Linguistic Theory 285
Description:

Integrational Linguistics (IL), developed by the German linguist
Hans-Heinrich Lieb and others, is an approach to linguistics that
integrates linguistic descriptions, construed as declarative theories, with
a detailed theory of language that covers all classical areas of
linguistics, from phonology to sentence semantics, and takes linguistic
variation, both synchronic and diachronic, fully into account. The aim of
this book is to demonstrate how some controversial issues in language
description are resolved in Integrational Linguistics. The four essays
united here cover nearly all levels of language systems: phonetics and
phonology (The Case for Two-Level Phonology by Hans-Heinrich Lieb, on
German obstruent tensing and French nasal alternation), morphology (Form
and Function of Verbal Ablaut in Contemporary Standard German by Bernd
Wiese), morphology and syntax (Inflectional Units and Their Effects by
Sebastian Drude, on the person system in Guaran), and syntax and sentence
semantics (Topic Integration by Andreas Nolda, on split topicalization in
German).
