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: Erzählen als Form – Formen des Erzählens [Narrative as Form – Form of Narrative]
Edited By: Friederike Kern

Series Title: De Gruyter Reihe Germanistische Linguistik 295
Description:

The articles in this volume provide an insight into the richness of narrative. In
the process they focus on two main areas: oral narrative as part of everyday
interaction and the acquisition of narrative abilities as part of more
comprehensive discursive competencies. From a linguistic perspective, the
variance of the narrative form also points to the esthetic dimensions of literary
narrative. The concept of this volume is derived from the work of Uta Quasthoff,
whose 65th birthday prompted its creation and publication.
