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: The Syntax of Local Processes
Written By: Joseph E. Emonds
URL: http://www.indiana.edu/~iulc/
Description:

This volume (the first of a two-volume set) contains articles originally published between 1973 and 1987 around a unified theme. Each article has an empirical focus on one or more local syntactic processes. While most of the articles were written to support theoretical positions in terms of debates that have since been settled or eclipsed, these studies linguistically situate many paradigms of interest and support still defensible analyses for a variety of constructions often treated only schematically in current literature. Several contain some first formulations of arguments and claims still widely in use. Though formulated in terms of local transformations, the properties and paradigms discussed thus remain relevant for determining optimal grammatical and lexical characterizations of individual members of functional categories.
