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:

Please Note: This is a new volume of a previously announced series of books.

The Early New High German Dictionary is an alphabetically-ordered sense dictionary of the varieties of High German from the 14th to 17th century.

Its entries are arranged as follows: Each headword is followed by concise information on the inflectional morphology and (in the case of etymologically isolated words or words that are difficult to classify) brief references to the etymology. This is followed by the core of each entry, namely, the explanation of the various senses of a word, which have been numbered. References to time, region and text type provide important information about the dimensions in which each sense of a word was used. The cumulative naming of semantically-related words and typical syntagmatic contexts provide insight into the structural, lexical correlations. A detailed block of examples per sense demonstrates the word in its original usage.
