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: Cover Annual Review of South Asian Languages and Linguistics
Subtitle: 2011
Edited By: Ghanshyam Sharma
URL: http://www.degruyter.de/cont/fb/sk/detailEn.cfm?isbn=9783110270570&sel=pi
Series Title: Trends in Linguistics. Studies and Monographs [TiLSM] 241
Description:

South Asia is home to a large number of languages and dialects. Although
linguists working on this region have made significant contributions to our
understanding of language, society, and language in society on a global
scale, there is as yet no recognized international forum for the exchange of
ideas amongst linguists working on South Asia.

The Annual Review of South Asian Languages and Linguistics is designed to
be just that forum. It brings together empirical and theoretical research and
serves as a testing ground for the articulation of new ideas and approaches
which may be grounded in a study of South Asian languages but which have
universal applicability.

Each volume will have three major sections:

I. Invited contributions consisting of state-of-the-art essays on research in
South Asian languages.
II. Refereed open submissions focusing on relevant issues and providing
various viewpoints.
III. Reports from around the world, book reviews and abstracts of doctoral
theses.
