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: Of Grammar, Words, and Verses
Subtitle: In honor of Carlos Piera
Edited By: Esther Torrego
URL: http://benjamins.com/catalog/lfab.8
Series Title: Language Faculty and Beyond 8
Description:

This book offers new work by some major figures in the field of linguistics,
addressing old debates from the perspective of current explanatory grammatical
theory. These include paradigmatic relations among words, and agreeing
adjectives and their grammatical source. Covering a broad range of empirical
domains, the contributors of this volume examine the role of Economy in syntax
and in syntactic interfaces with phonology and semantics, and their implications
for processing. The evidence is taken from a great variety of languages,
including Arabic dialects, Basque, Czech, Dutch, English, French, German,
Latin, and Spanish. Two chapters on metrics complete honoring Carlos Piera’s
longstanding scholarship in linguistic theory within Spain and abroad.
