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."

Series Title: Current Issues in Linguistic Theory 320
Description:

The International Conference on Historical Linguistics has always been a forum
that reflects the general state of the art in the field, and the 2009 edition, held in
Nijmegen, The Netherlands, fully allows the conclusion that the field has been
thriving over the years. The studies presented in this volume are an expression
of ongoing theoretical discussions as well as new analytical approaches to the
study of issues concerning language change. Taken together, they reflect some
of the current challenges in the field, as well as the opportunities offered by
judicious use of theoretical models and careful corpus-based work. The
volume's contributions are organized under the following headings: I. General
and Specific Issues of Language Change, II. Linguistic Variation and Change in
Germanic, III. Linguistic Variation and Change in Greek, and IV. Linguistic
Change in Romance.
