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: Cascadilla Proceedings Project
Description:

This volume contains 13 papers presented at the 2008 HCSNet Workshop on
Designing the Australian National Corpus (AusNC), which was held at the
University of New South Wales as part of the annual HCSNet Summerfest from
4-5 December, 2009.

The papers include a selection of those presented at that workshop,
together with invited papers from selected participants. The first three
serve as "platform" papers in terms of the conception and design of the
AusNC. The next five papers focus on the diversity of language in
Australia, and the implications for the design of the AusNC. Another four
papers discuss the range of material, other than traditional texts and
transcripts, which should be collected and included in the AusNC. The
collection is rounded off by a paper on the advances in annotation
associated with the American National Corpus.

Proceedings from Cascadilla Proceedings Project are published in library
binding and on the web. We offer free web access to the complete
proceedings in PDF format through our web site, http://www.lingref.com.
