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."

Title: Vergleichende Syntax der indogermanischen Sprachen 3 Volume Set: Volume Set
Written By: Berthold Delbrück
Description:

Karl Brugmann originally intended to include a volume on syntax in his
comparative grammar of Indo-European, but as that ambitious project
expanded, he and his publisher enlisted Berthold Delbrück (1842–1922) to
take on the treatment of syntax. Delbrück’s three volumes on inflection and
phrase and sentence structure appeared between 1893 and 1900 and remain the
fullest treatment of Indo-European syntax to this day. In this, his first
volume, Delbrück gives an overview of the prevailing academic positions in
the field of Indo-European comparative syntax of his day. He applies the
Neogrammarian methodology used by Brugmann, and meticulously presents data
relating to nouns, the case system, adjectives, pronouns, numerals, adverbs
and prepositions, giving particular attention to the ablative and the
dative in a number of Indo-European languages.
