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: "Haben" als Vollverb [Have as a Complete Verb]
Subtitle: Eine dekompositionale Analyse
Written By: Martin Businger

Series Title: De Gruyter Linguistische Arbeiten 538
Description:

This monograph on the verb "have" in the function of a full verb asserts that
have-constructions in the syntactic analysis are to be placed in relationship with
absolute with-constructions (cf. "Mit den Füßen auf dem Tisch erwarte ich
meine Schwiegereltern" [Literal translation: "With my feet on the table I expect
my parents-in-law"]. Furthermore, the study also contributes to a better
understanding of the syntax and semantics of adjectives. The findings are
interpreted within the context of generative and optimal theoretical models.
