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: Non-Transformational Syntax
Subtitle: Formal and Explicit Models of Grammar
Written By: Robert D. Borsley
Kersti Börjars
URL: http://www.wiley.com/remtitle.cgi?isbn=0631209654
Description:

This authoritative introduction explores the main non-transformational syntactic
frameworks: Head-driven Phrase Structure Grammar, Lexical-Functional
Grammar, Categorial Grammar, and Simpler Syntax. The chapters by key
linguists in the field cover elementary principles and more advanced issues and
also explore a range of issues that arise in connection with these contemporary
approaches, including questions about processing and acquisition. By shedding
new light on alternate approaches to the phenomena of syntax, “Non-
Transformational Syntax” represents an important contribution to the study of
formal linguistics.
