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: Valenzgrammatik des Deutschen [German Valency Grammar]
Subtitle: Eine Einf├╝hrung
Written By: Klaus Welke
URL: http://www.degruyter.com/cont/fb/sk/detailEn.cfm?id=IS-9783110195385-1
Series Title: De Gruyter Studium
Description:

Valency grammar assumes that words, e.g. verbs, have a valency that
determines the design of the construction - in the case of verbs the
construction of the sentence. Construction grammar, a current direction
of grammar research, does not start from the word and go to the
sentence (to the construction), but as a matter of principle always starts
from the construction. Both approaches are presented together in this
book to show how word and construction determine each other
reciprocally and how creative language usage develops from this
reciprocal relationship.
