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."

Der Volksstamm der Banöho gehört zu der großen Bantuvölkerfamilie

gegenwärtig nur die Batangaküste (Kamerun). Nach ihrer Tradition wollen die
Banôho mit den weiter im Innern des mittleren und südlichen Kamerun
wohnenden Bau, Buli, Bane, Jaunde, Mgumba usw. keine Verwandtschaft
haben. Doch sollen auch sie einmal gleich ihren jetzigen Rivalen, den
Bapuku, vor Zeiten im Innern der großen Urwaldregion gewohnt haben und
durch Nachdrängen anderer Stämme von Süd-und Nordosten her allmählich
zur Küste des Atlantischen Ozeans geschoben worden sein. (aus der
Einleitung der Originalausgabe MSOS, 1907)
