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: Die Sprache der Busa am Niger
Written By: E. Funke
Series Title: LINCOM Gramatica 57
Description:

Die Orte, in denen nach Angaben meines Gewährsmannes noch die
Busasprache gesprochen wird, leigen sämtlich auf der rechten Seite des Nigers.
Das Busa trägt alle charakteristischen Merkmale einer echten Sudansprache,
Einsilbigkeit der Wortstämme, musikalischen Silbenton, usw. Ich wage zu
behaupten. daß es auf dem ganzen weiten Wege vom Ewesprachgebiet bis
nach Busa am Niger keine Sprache gibt, die dem Ewe in diesem Punkte näher
stünde als Busa.

Inhalt: Die Laute, die Wortarten (Substantiv, Pronomen, Adjektiv, Zahlwort,
Verb, Interjektion, Adverb), Sätze aus dem täglichen Leben (originally published
1915, Berlin, written in German).
