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 Khassi Language
Written By: H. Roberts
URL: www.lincom-shop.eu
Series Title: LINCOM Gramatica
Description:

We would particularly call attention to two prominent features of the work:
complete paradigms for the conjugation of all verbs and a detailed treatment of
the article, subjects in regard to which the Khassi language possesses features
altogether its own, as compared with other members of the Sub-Himalayan
group. The number of people speaking the language may roughly estimated at
250,000. Their area is situated in the very centre of the Province of Assam
(adopted from the preface).

The grammar contains chapters on orthography, nominal morphology (noun,
pronoun, adjectives), verbal morphology (moods and tenses, conjugations,
active, passive voice), adverbs, preposition, and syntax. (Re-edition; originally
published 1891 in London; written in English)
