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."

Title: L'Argot au XXe siècle
Subtitle: Édition inversée et raisonnée du dictionnaire français-argot
Written By: Aristide Bruant
Léon de Bercy
Edited By: Denis Delaplace
Series Title: Classiques de l'argot et du jargon, 3

L'Argot au XXe siècle est un dictionnaire français-argot signé par Aristide Bruant et réalisé avant tout par Léon de Bercy. Seule une édition inversée (argot-français) et raisonnée pouvait restituer avec précision ce panorama lexical; en replaçant l'ouvrage dans la lignée de ses prédécesseurs et en mettant mieux en valeur son apport, la présente édition facilitera en outre aux lecteurs l'accès à de nombreux passages littéraires qui, du XVe siècle à nos jours, se sont alimentés aux ressources d'expressivité offertes par l'argot. This reverse (slang-French) and critical dictionary is vital to understand a great many literary texts from the 15th century to the present day which are nourished by the expressive resources provided by slang.
