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: New Perspectives in Greek Linguistics
Edited By: Nikolaos Lavidas
Elissavet Nouchoutidou
Marietta Sionti
Description:

New Perspectives in Greek Linguistics is a selection of papers presenting
some of the ongoing research in Greek Linguistics. The contributions in
this volume, which have their origin in the 4th Athens Postgraduate
Conference in Linguistics, refer to various theoretical frameworks and
cover a wide range of topics (from phonology of dialects to acquisition of
syntax); however, they share the common reference to Greek and Theoretical
Linguistics. The second common feature is a tendency to investigate already
known problems using new methods, considering different factors from
previous research or introducing innovative ideas. The volume is dedicated
to Professor Gaberell Drachman and Professor Angeliki Malikouti-Drachman as
a small token of gratitude for their ceaseless presence and their
contribution to Theoretical Linguistics, to Greek Linguistics and to
postgraduate studies in Linguistics in Greece.
This volume is of particular interest to linguists working on various areas
of Greek Linguistics, especially those who would like to keep up with
ongoing research. It presents an opportunity to see the application of
linguistic theory in Greek and the current comparative research.
