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: Linguistische Arbeiten 532
Description:

This volume studies how speakers deal with loanwords from foreign
languages. Are foreign words adapted in pronunciation, writing, flexion and
syntax to the recipient language or do they keep characteristics of the
language of their origin? Do loan units change the system of the recipient
language or do they get changed by it? Methodical considerations to
identify foreign words supplement these studies on German, Polish, Hebrew
and Japanese.
