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: Syntactic Analysis
Subtitle: The Basics
Written By: Nicholas Sobin
URL: http://www.wiley.com/remtitle.cgi?isbn=1444335073
Description:

This succinct, practical introduction to understanding sentence structure is ideal
for students with little background in linguistics who need to get up to speed on
how modern syntactic analysis works. Introducing the reader to the central
terms and concepts in the field of syntax, it explains how to understand and
operate syntactic analysis, as well as how to approach linguistic argumentation.
Included are numerous problem sets, helpfully graded for difficulty, with model
answers provided at critical points.  Designed for either classroom use or self-
study, Syntactic Analysis fills a gap in the available literature by providing a
short and hands-on guide to understanding syntactic systems, and provides the
reader with a strong foundation for more advanced work in the field.
