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: Analyse et description du manuscrit et édition de 53 unica anonymes
Written By: Niclaas Unlandt

Series Title: Beihefte zur Zeitschrift für romanische Philologie 368
Description:

The Berne song book originates from the last third of the 13th century and is
often considered marginal because of the Lorraine dialect and the corrupted
delivery. Here it is analysed in depth for the first time. It includes a linguistic
and material analysis of the manuscript followed by a new edition of 53
anonymous poems. Each poem is presented as a diplomatic transcription with
critical editorial commentary. A synoptic index allows the reader to place the
manuscript within the wider context of the written tradition of older northern
French poetry.
