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."

Subtitle: Eine Studie zur historischen Semiotik und Textanalyse
Written By: Nina-Maria Klug
URL: http://www.degruyter.com/view/product/182713?rskey=38NneG&format=G
Series Title: Studia Linguistica Germanica 112
Description:

The written genre of the religious pamphlet stands out as a deeply
characteristic form of public communication in the early modern period, not
least on account of its inseparable combination of language and images.
This study undertakes an analysis of semiotically complex religious
pamphlets from the late 16th century, thereby making a contribution to
research in linguistic history that is culturally oriented. In the process,
it illustrates the opportunities for using frame semantics to analyze both
verbal and visual texts.
