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."

Subtitle: Theorie und Methode linguistischer Diskursanalyse am Beispiel der Bioethikdebatte
Written By: Constanze SpieƟ

Series Title: De Gruyter Sprache und Wissen 7
Description:

This work examines discourse analysis in terms of its theory and methodology
and their empirical implementation. The linguistics of discourse is seen as being
based in action theory. A multilevel discourse analysis model is developed as
methodology. With reference to the example of the bioethical discourse
surrounding stem cell research, the author shows how keywords, metaphors and
the topoi of argumentation are positioned and semantically fixed in the context
of ideological argumentation and how this leads to a perspectivized construct of
reality.
