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: New Perspectives on Historical Latin Syntax
Subtitle: Volume 1: Syntax of the Sentence
Edited By: Philip Baldi
Pierluigi Cuzzolin
URL: http://degruyter.de/cont/fb/sk/detailEn.cfm?id=IS-9783110190823-1
Series Title: Trends in Linguistics. Studies and Monographs [TiLSM] 180.1
Description:

New Perspectives on Historical Latin Syntax is a methodologically uniform
multi-authored work that traces main currents in the syntactic history of
Latin.

Relying primarily on a functional-typological methodology, in which
structural considerations of the traditional type are combined in a
complementary and balanced way with functional and typological principles,
the book approaches historical Latin syntax from a non-traditional
perspective, investigating diachronic phenomena primarily from their
discourse function as revealed in Latin texts.
