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: Constraints in Discourse 2
Edited By: Peter K├╝hnlein

Series Title: Pragmatics & Beyond New Series 194
Description:

Text is highly structured, and structured at a variety of levels. But what
are the units of text, which levels are at stake, and what establishes the
structure that binds the units together? This volume, just as the
predecessor a spin off of one of the workshops on constraints in discourse,
contains the most recent, thoroughly reviewed papers by specialists in the
area that try to give answers to such questions. It helps deepening the
understanding of a multiplicity of mechanisms and constraints that are at
work during production and comprehension of well-formed discourse.

Researchers from linguistics, both formal and psycholinguistics, artificial
intelligence, and cognitive sciences will appreciate this book as a
valuable resource for information and inspiration.
