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."

Series Title: Encyclopedia of Arabic Language and Linguistics
Description:

Brill is delighted to announce the completion of the Encyclopedia of
Arabic Language and Linguistics
in print. The encyclopedia represents a
unique collaboration of over hundreds of scholars from around the world,
covering all relevant aspects of the study of Arabic and dealing with all
levels of the language (pre-Classical Arabic, Classical Arabic, Modern
Standard Arabic, Arabic vernaculars, mixed varieties of Arabic).

No other reference work offers this scale of contributions or depth and
breadth of coverage. The Encyclopedia of Arabic Language and
Linguistics
is, therefore, a standard reference work for students and
researchers in the field of linguistics, Islamic studies, Arabic literature
and other related fields for many years to come.
