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 present book is based on the presentations made during the IXth International School on Lexicography “Multi-disciplinary Lexicography: Traditions and Challenges of the XXIst century” (Ivanovo State University, September 8-10, 2011) and continues a series of collective monographs devoted to theoretical and practical problems of lexicography, published by Cambridge Scholars Publishing in 2007, 2009, 2010. The scope of topics discussed in four parts (Dictionary as a Cross-road of Language and Culture, Dictionary Use and Dictionary Criticism, Terminology and LSP Studies, Projects of New Dictionaries) is rather wide and focuses on burning problems of European, Russian and world lexicography, as well as on projects of new dictionaries. The book might be interesting for theoreticians, practitioners, and students of linguistic faculties.
