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."


Book Information

   

Title: A Grebo–English Dictionary
Written By: Gordon Innes
Description:

Originally published in 1967, this dictionary of Grebo, one of the Kru
languages spoken in South-west Liberia, will be of value not only to those
who are concerned with using the language, but also to scholars engaged in
comparative studies; the latter will have here a comprehensive and reliable
body of data, presented in an eminently usable form. All the Grebo material
is tone-marked, a point of particular importance in a language which is one
of the few in West Africa that distinguishes four tone-levels.
