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."

Series Title: Studies in Constraint-Based Lexicalism
Description:

This collection draws together recent work on constraint-based and
resource-sensitive approaches to the grammar of natural languages. Some of
the issues addressed are: extraction phenomena in a range of languages, the
syntax of nominal phrases, the role of argument structure, defining the
interface between syntax and morphology and between semantics and prosody,
quantifier scope, remnant movement, construction grammar, and formal and
computational aspects of grammar formalisms. This volume brings together
the leading linguists, logicians, and computer scientists working on
Head-driven Phrase Structure Grammar and Categorial Grammar. Derived from
two recent conferences on Formal Grammar and Head-driven Phrase Structure
Grammar in Aix (1997) and Saarbrücken (1998), this volume represents the
most current work in these frameworks.
