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: Linguistik - Impulse & Tendenzen
Description:

Perceptual dialectology is concerned with subjective, non-specialist, naïve
perspectives of German and the role they play in day-to-day social
interaction. What do non-specialists in linguistics think about dialects
and their speakers? What cognitive maps do they have of these dialects?
What attitudes do they have towards the dialects and their speakers? Do
non-specialists in linguistics associate particular features with the
dialects or perceive them in a special way? The book contains the latest
research findings on this subject.
