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: Memory, Mind and Language
Edited By: Hans Götzsche
Description:

Memory, Mind and Language celebrates the 30th anniversary of the The Nordic
Association of Linguists (NAL) and the main contribution is the history of
those first 30 years. The book is also an overview of trends and basic
problems in linguistics in the first decennium of the 21st century. It
takes up a number of topics in the field, among them the question of
synchrony vs. diachrony in the language sciences, and issues of how to
investigate the relationship between language, brain and mind. The book
proposes some preliminary solutions to that problem, and, most
significantly, it touches on both general and specific issues in theory and
analysis, e.g. ‘adverbs in English and Norwegian,’ ‘verb semantics,’
‘pronouns in Estonian,’ ‘morphology and neurolinguistics,’ ‘word order and
morphology,’ ‘the nature and use of prepotions’ and ‘speech acts.’ The
contributing scholars come from a variety of traditions in linguistics, a
fact that shows the broadness of the content.
