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: Descriptive Grammars
Description:

Please note: This is a new version of a previously announced text.

This is a complete grammatical description of Marathi, which belongs to the
Indo-European family and is spoken in Maharashtra State in India. It has
around 45 million speakers, who comprise about eight per cent of the total
population of India. Marathi is particularly interesting from the point of
view of its structure: it is a blending of linguistic features of the
Indo-European and Dravidian language families. Marathi provides fascinating
data for the study of language typology, structural change, and language
universals.

Marathi is presented in a broad, universally intelligible framework which
makes it accessible to linguists and non-linguists, and native and
non-native speakers alike.
