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: Computer Processing of Sanskrit Nominal Inflections
Subtitle: Methods and Implementation
Written By: Subhash Chandra
Girish Nath Jha
Description:

"Computer Processing of Sanskrit Nominal Inflections: Methods and
Implementation" is the result of Research and Development (R&D) at the
Master of Philosophy (MPhil) level at Jawaharlal Nehru University, New
Delhi, India. The title of the dissertation was “Machine Recognition and
Morphological Analysis of Subanta-Padas.” The work, which is based on the
reverse engineering implementation of Panini’s Sanskrit Grammar, brings
together new and original studies in the area of computational linguistics,
language technology and natural language processing with reference to
parsing Sanskrit nominal inflections.

On the surface level, Panini has defined rules in a forward looking
generative fashion which makes reverse analysis necessary for parsing.
Since parsing inflections is the first basic step towards complete
analysis, the present work has relevance for any larger system that may
evolve in future.
