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:

This essential work with its more than a thousand maps and commentaries is
the first to document the surname stock of the Federal Republic of Germany by
statistical occurrence and geographical distribution. It meets the interests of
linguists with a grammatical part (three volumes) dealing with the phonematics,
graphematics, morphematics and syntagmatics of family names, while cultural
historians and population historians are served with a lexical part (three volumes
- surnames by place of origin and domicile, by occupation and by nicknames,
by given names). The atlas provides a new basis for onomastics. It also
presents an indispensable aid to other disciplines from social history through
research into settlement and migration to genetics.
