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: Collected Works of M A K Halliday Set
Written By: Michael A. K. Halliday
Edited By: Jonathan J. Webster
Description:

Note: This is the paperback edition of a previously announced book.

"An initiative greatly to be welcomed."
- IH Journal, 2008.

For nearly half a century Michael Halliday has been enriching the
discipline of linguistics with his keen insight into the social semiotic
phenomenon we call language. Now, for the first time, Halliday's collected
works are available as a ten-volume set.

As a self-styled 'generalist' Michael Halliday has published in many
branches of linguistics, both theoretical and applied, including grammar
and semantics, discourse analysis and stylistics, phonology,
sociolinguistics, computational linguistics, language education and child
language development. This ten-volume set encompasses all of these aspects
of Halliday's work.
