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."

Description:

Dans les communautés kurdophones d'Arménie, le deuil, l'exil et l'héroïsme sont évoqués par un régime particulier d'énonciation. Mêlant ethnographie, analyse acoustique et linguistique, l'auteur montre que cet usage de la voix construit un idéal de vie reliant les vivants aux absents et aux défunts. In the Kurdish-speaking communities of Armenia, mourning, exile, and heroism are expressed through a specific system of utterances. Blending ethnography, acoustic analysis, and linguistics, the author shows that this use of the voice constructs a form of ideal life linking the living to the absent and deceased.
