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: A Grammar of the Burmese Language
Written By: A. Judson
URL: www.lincom-shop.eu
Series Title: LINCOM Gramatica
Description:

The Burmese language is written from left to right, without any division of words.
The pure Burmese is monosyllabic, but the introduction of the Pali language,
with the Boodhistic religion, has occasioned the incorporation of many
polysyllabc words of Pali origin. The short grammar gives information on the
alphabet, nouns, secondary nouns, adjectives, verbs, adverbs, interjections.
