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."

Description:

The cipher “1968” evokes a remembrance that has a strong impact on the collective memory, especially through its language. After forty years the time has come for an interim status report, which this collective volume undertakes. It mainly contains linguistic contributions on “1968”, presenting and describing the various manifestations and aspects of this language. Thus, it represents a contribution of cultural-studies to the history of language, as well as to semiotics, and to the history of the media and contemporary history.
