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."

Book Information


Title: Münsterländische Nachlassinventare aus der Frühen Neuzeit
Subtitle: Edition mit Einleitung und Registern
Edited By: Markus Denkler

Nachlassinventare eröffnen dem Sprachhistoriker zahlreiche Perspektiven für Analysen der Variation und Dynamik von Sprache. Die im Buch versammelten 308 Texte stammen aus dem Münsterland und geben detaillierte Einblicke in den lang andauernden und komplexen Prozess des Schreibsprachenwechsels vom Niederdeutschen zum Hochdeutschen. Darüber hinaus machen sie den Wandel von Textmustern, an denen sich Schreiber beim Verfassen und Leser beim Rezipieren der Texte orientieren, greifbar. Neben der Forschung kann auch der akademische Unterricht von der Textsammlung profitieren.
