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 Beihefte zur Zeitschrift für romanische Philologie 374
Description:

Polysemy and polyfunctionality are key components in the motivational structure of discourse markers. In this study the author investigates adjectival units that contribute to discourse formation in the spoken Spanish of Chile. The author shows that polyfunctionality drives not only polysemy but also grammaticalization. This grammaticalization is examined by the author in the field of tension between oral and written traditions.
