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: De Gruyter Studia Linguistica Germanica 110
Description:

Contemporary historical linguistics is characterized by basic instabilities
in its theoretical foundations. The studies in this volume both reveal and
question this theoretical instability. The authors reflect about the
potentials and limitations of different paths to knowledge, different
underlying theoretical and methodological principles, as well as about
those aspects of research on the history of language linked to the history
of science and epistemology.
