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."

Covering sixteen selected languages from different language families,

appear in at least one of the languages tested. Entries are comprised of
a brief definition, followed by a summary paragraph containing a wealth of
historical and linguistic information. Many entries are also accompanied
by a grid summarizing the distribution of the word across Europe.
