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: Phonological Representations, Their Names, Forms and Powers
Written By: John S. Coleman
URL: http://www.cambridge.org/catalogue/catalogue.asp?isbn=0521472083
Series Title: Cambridge Studies in Linguistics 85
Description:

This book reviews current theories of the sound-structure of words and
syllables. Dr. Coleman presents technical arguments showing that the
contemporary theories are too complex and that a simpler theory,
Declarative Phonology, is adequate. This theory is exemplified with
detailed accounts of the sound-structure of words and syllables in English
and Japanese.
