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: Existential Faithfulness
Subtitle: A Study of Reduplicative TETU, Feature Movement, and Dissimilation
Written By: Caro Struijke
Series Title: Outstanding Dissertations in Linguistics
Description:

Existential Faithfulness studies the nature of underlying-surface relations in phonology, arguing for the centrality of existential faithfulness. Caro Struijke argues that faithfulness constraints on the input-output correspondence relation demand that each input element has some output correspondent, and they are thus existentially quantified. It is also argued that reduplication and feature displacement involve segmental fission.
