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: Production-Comprehension Asymmetries in Child Language

Series Title: Studies on Language Acquisition [SOLA] 43
Description:

This book summarizes papers from the workshop 'Production-Comprehension
Asymmetries in Child Language' held in Osnabrück in 2009. The starting point of
the workshop was the observation that children's production skills appear to
precede their comprehension skills in a number of phenomena, e.g. pronouns or
negation. The volume provides cross-linguistic evidence for such asymmetric
development and investigates grammatical and methodical explanations of the
observed asymmetries.
