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: Oxford Studies in Theoretical Linguistics
Description:

This book draws together nine original investigations by leading linguists and
promising young scholars on the syntax of complementisers (eg "that" in "She
said that she would") and their phrases. The chapters are divided into two parts,
each of which highlights aspects of the behavior and function of
complementisers. The first part looks at how and when subjects, or parts of
subjects, can and cannot move outside their canonical position in a sentence.
Each chapter examines and compares the relevance of a number of syntactic
factors in languages such as English, Italian, Spanish, Greek, Brazilian
Portuguese and Bavarian. In the second part, the focus turns to the nature and
function of complementisers themselves, with discussions drawing on evidence
from Italian, Italian dialects, Hebrew, and Dutch.
