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:

Domari is an Indo-Aryan language that is now highly endangered.

The grammar is based on conversational material recorded in Jerusalem in the mid-1990s with some of the last speakers of this particular variety.
