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: Quantitative Corpus Linguistics with R
Subtitle: A Practical Introduction
Written By: Stefan Th. Gries
URL: http://routledge.com/9780415962704
Description:

The first textbook of its kind, Quantitative Corpus Linguistics with R
demonstrates how to use the open source programming language R for corpus
linguistic analyses. Computational and corpus linguists doing corpus work
will find that R provides an enormous range of functions that currently
require several programs to achieve – searching and processing corpora,
arranging and outputting the results of corpus searches, statistical
evaluation, and graphing.
