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: Sprachenwechsel
Subtitle: Akkulturation und Mehrsprachigkeit der Brandenburger Hugenotten vom 17. bis 19. Jahrhundert
Written By: Manuela Böhm
URL: http://www.degruyter.de/cont/fb/sk/detailEn.cfm?id=IS-9783110219951-1
Series Title: Studia Linguistica Germanica 101
Description:

The study deals with the linguistic acculturation at the end of the 17th
century of the French Protestant Huguenots, who also sought refuge in
Brandenburg. The study focuses on the reconstruction of the linguistic
integration of these migrants, who in the course of time gave up their
native French language and went over to German. An analysis of the
linguistic situation in three different Huguenot colonies shows that the
processes of language change differed widely, depending on the place and
context.
