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."

Description:

“The Blackwell Companion to Phonology” is a major reference work drawing
together 124 new contributions from leading scholars in the field. Led by a
renowned team of international scholars, the Companion represents a diverse
range of approaches and methodologies to the key phenomena in
phonological research. In contrast to other handbooks and reference works
currently available for phonology, these volumes focus on phenomena and
case studies to highlight historical and ongoing debates in the field.
Interdisciplinary connections, such as the social and computational sciences,
are covered, as well as statistical and experimental techniques. The
Companion will be a touchstone for future phonological theorists, giving an
overview of all the data and insights which any good theory of phonology
should be able to cover. Available at www.companiontophonology.com.

Simultaneously offering broad coverage and a high level of detail, “The
Blackwell Companion to Phonology” is a landmark work available in both print
and online editions that will be indispensable to students and researchers in
the field for years to come.
