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: Linguistik Aktuell/Linguistics Today 135
Description:

This volume is a collection of papers that highlights some recurring themes
that have surfaced in the generative tradition in linguistics over the past
40 years. The volume is more than a historical take on a theoretical
tradition; rather, it is also a "compass" pointing to exciting new
empirical directions inspired by generative theory. In fact, the papers
show a progression from core theoretical concerns to data-driven
experimental investigation and can be divided roughly into two categories:
those that follow a syntactic and theoretical course, and those that follow
an experimental or applied path. Many of the papers revisit long-standing
or recurring themes in the generative tradition, some of which seek
experimental validation or refutation. The merger of theoretical and
experimental concerns makes this volume stand out, but it is also forward
looking in that it addresses the recent concerns of the creation and
consumption of data across the discipline.
