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: A Reference Grammar of Egyptian Arabic
Written By: Ernest T. Abdel-Massih
Zaki N. Abdel-Malek
El-Said M. Badawi
URL: http://press.georgetown.edu/detail.html?id=9781589012608
Series Title: Georgetown Classics in Arabic Language and Linguistics
Description:

Originally published in 1979, this classic reference work presents
definitions of grammatical and linguistic terms for spoken Egyptian Arabic
in dictionary form from "active participles" through "writing system."
Entries feature definitions and examples of all the grammatical features
including phonology, morphology, and syntax. Aimed at the intermediate to
advanced student of Egyptian Arabic, this volume presupposes a basic
knowledge of Egyptian Arabic. Arabic lexical items are presented in
romanized transliteration and are therefore accessible to those who are not
familiar with Arabic script.
