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 Reihe Germanistische Linguistik 296
Description:

For a number of years, there has been mounting concern and debate in Germany about the “decline of language”. From a linguistic perspective, this hypothesis of decline cannot be substantiated. Public debate, however, does raise some new questions about the stability and mutability of language norms. This volume undertakes a linguistic examination of the relationship between empiricism and standards in relation to various forms and domains of communication, including school, the workplace, and new media. The book’s intended audience includes academics and educators, as well as the lay public interested in linguistic issues.
