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: The Semantics of Nominalizations across Languages and Frameworks
Edited By: Monika Rathert
Artemis Alexiadou
URL: http://www.degruyter.de/cont/fb/sk/detailEn.cfm?id=IS-9783110226539-1
Series Title: Interface Explorations [IE]
Description:

The volume explores the semantics of nominalizations from different
theoretical points of view: formal and lexical semantics,
cognitive-functional grammar, lexical-functional grammar, discourse
representation theory. Data from a variety of languages are taken into
account, including Hungarian, Italian, French, German and English. The
papers discuss the semantics of distinct readings of nominalizations and
meaning differences observed between competing affixes.
