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: Structures and Strategies
Written By: Adriana Belletti
URL: http://routledge.com/9780415962018
Series Title: Routledge Leading Linguists
Description:

Following crucial insights on the functional structure of the clause and
recent developments within the cartographic projects and minimalism, this
book addresses various central themes in Italian and Romance syntax ranging
from verb syntax and the syntax of verb-related phenomena of agreement and
cliticization, to word order issues and their status in discourse contexts.
It illustrates a research program where the basic formal components of
grammar, the rich cartographic syntactic structures, are directly
implicated in morphosyntactic computations proper as well as in the
articulation of discourse strategies.
