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: Current Issues in Linguistic Theory 303
Description:

The annual conference series ‘Going Romance’ has developed into a major
European discussion forum where ideas about language and linguistics and
about Romance languages in particular are put in an inter­active
perspective, giving room to both universality and Romance-internal
variation. The current volume contains a selection of the papers that were
presented at the 20th Going Romance conference, held at the VU University
in Amsterdam in December 2006. The papers in the volume deal with current
issues in phonology, morphology, syntax, and semantics, and range across a
variety of Romance languages.
