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: W├Ârterbuch des Gegensinns im Deutschen
Subtitle: Band 2: H-Q
Written By: Peter Rolf Lutzeier

Description:

The 3-volume dictionary presents words in German that have opposed readings
as part of their individual polysemy. Such an opposite meaning is, for an
individual word, analogous to the common antonymy that exists between
different words. The concept of opposite meaning is relatively unknown and, in
contrast to synonym and anytonym dictionaries, there exists no dictionary of
opposite meanings for any language. In this sense, the current work is an
innovation and will be of great interest to laypersons with an interest in language
as well as to experts in the field.
