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: Dependency in Linguistic Description
Edited By: Alain Polguère
Igor A. Mel’čuk

Series Title: Studies in Language Companion Series 111
Description:

The book covers three major topics crucial for contemporary syntactic
research. Firstly, it offers a sketch of a general theory of dependency in
natural language. Different types of linguistic dependencies are
distinguished (semantic, syntactic, and morphological), the criteria for
their recognition are formulated, and all possible combinations are
discussed in some detail. Secondly, it demonstrates the application of the
general theory in two specific domains: establishing the system of
Surface-Syntactic Relations in French and linear positioning of clitics in
Serbian. Thirdly, it presents a formal sketch of Head-Driven
Phrase-Structure Grammar modelled in terms of syntactic dependencies.
