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:

German is an official language in seven nations, and spoken as a minority language in many other regions. This volume explores the diverse national, regional, and societal influences that shape the contemporary German language, and discusses current issues related to variational and social linguistics as well as language policy. Additional chapters examine German as a foreign/second language and the cultural dimensions of language and language contact.
