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: Middle Arabic and Mixed Arabic
Subtitle: Diachrony and Synchrony

URL: http://www.brill.nl/middle-arabic-and-mixed-arabic
Series Title: Studies in Semitic Languages and Linguistics
Description:

In recent scholarship, the connection between Middle Arabic and Mixed Arabic
is studied in a more systematic way. The idea of studying these two varieties in
one theoretical frame is quite new, and was initiated at the conferences of the
International Association for the Study of Middle and Mixed Arabic (AIMA). At
these conferences, the members of AIMA discuss the latest insights into the
definition, terminology, and research methods of Middle and Mixed Arabic.
Results of various discussions in this field are to be found in the present book,
which contains articles describing and analysing the linguistic features of
Muslim, Jewish and Christian Arabic texts (folklore, religious and linguistic
literature) as well as the matters of mixed language and diglossia.

Contributors include: Berend Jan Dikken, Lutz Edzard, Jacques Grand’Henry,

Amr Helmy Ibrahim, Paolo La Spisa, Jérôme Lentin, Gunvor Mejdell, Arie
