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."

Series Title: Phonology and Phonetics [PP] 13
Description:

This book takes contrast, an issue that has been central to phonological
theory since Saussure, as its central theme, making explicit its importance
to phonological theory, perception, and acquisition. The volume brings
together a number of different contemporary approaches to the theory of
contrast, including chapters set within more abstract representation-based
theories, as well as chapters that focus on functional phonetic theories
and perceptual constraints. This book will be of interest to phonologists,
phoneticians, psycholinguists, researchers in first and second language
acquisition, and cognitive scientists interested in current thinking on
this exciting topic.
