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: Laryngeal Cooccurrence Restrictions
Written By: Margaret R. Maceachern
Description:

This study presents an analysis of laryngeal cooccurrence restrictions within an Optimality Theory framework. The languages examined here include uechua, Aymara, Basque, Sanskrit, Ofo, Gojri, Old Georgian, Hausa, Tzutujil, and Shuswap. In each of these languages, particular segments are prohibited from cooccurring within the morpheme or word.

The book will be of interest to phonologists concerned with word- or morpheme-level cooccurrence restrictions, the Obligatory Contour Principle, or Optimality Theory.
