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: Handb├╝cher zur Sprach- und Kommunikationswissenschaft / Handbooks of Linguistics and Communication Science [HSK] 32/1
Description:

The handbook presents a well balanced general view of the current state of
Slavic linguistics and the Slavic languages with regard to their synchronic
and diachronic description. In contrast to previous undertakings of a
similar nature, this handbook is not a grammar with chapters on individual
languages. Its length, the extensive scope of its subject matter, the
systematic approach and the method of description which reflect the current
state of Slavic linguistics set this handbook apart from others.
