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: From Naming to Saying
Subtitle: The Unity of the Proposition
Written By: Martha I Gibson
URL: http://www.blackwellpublishing.com/book.asp?ref=0631226567
Description:

From Naming to Saying explores the classic question of the unity of the proposition, combining an historical approach with contemporary causal theories to offer a unique and novel solution.

Presents compelling and sophisticated answers to questions about how language represents the world.
Defends a novel approach to the classical question about the unity of the proposition.
Examines three key historical theories: Frege’s doctrine of concept and object, Russell’s analysis of the sentence, and Wittgenstein’s picture theory of meaning.
Combines an historical approach with discussion and defense of a contemporary causal theory of the unity of the proposition.
Establishes a view compatible with, though not dependent on, a causal theory of meaning.
