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: Pragmatics & Beyond New Series 188
Description:

This volume brings together for the first time pragmatic, rhetorical, and
literary perspectives on genre, mapping theoretical frontiers and
initiating a long overdue conversation amongst these methodologies. The
diverse approaches represented in this volume meet on common ground staked
by Internet communication: an arena challenging to traditional ideas of
genre which assume a conventional stability at odds with the unceasing
innovations of online discourse. Drawing on and developing new ideas of
genre, the research reported in this volume shows, on the contrary, that
genre study is a powerful means of testing commonplaces about the Internet
world and, in turn, that the Internet is a fertile field for theorising genre.
