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."

Call Information:
Call for papers: NJL Special Issue on Discourse, Grammar and Intersubjectivity: Nordic Perspectives

The second issue of Volume 39 (autumn 2016) of the Nordic Journal of Linguistics will be a special issue devoted to discourse, grammar and intersubjectivity. This issue will be edited by Marja Etelämäki, Ilona Herlin, Tapani Möttönen and Laura Visapää.

During the past years, understanding of human language, mind and action has taken a radically social turn. In many fields of research, human mind, language and action are now studied as thoroughly social and intersubjective phenomena; simultaneously, human sociality and intersubjectivity per se have become topics for multi-disciplinary studies.

The proposed special issue aims at bridging the gap between these lines of research, especially the cognitively- and interactionally-oriented studies on language and intersubjectivity. By proposing that language be studied as a socio-cognitive phenomenon that functions as an interface between social mind and social world, it brings language into the focus in the study of intersubjectivity. Further, it brings interaction and emotion into focus in the study on language.

We invite papers written in both the empirical and the philosophic-theoretical traditions, and we also welcome multidisciplinary approaches. We encourage the empirical papers to use especially Nordic languages as data. We wish to bring theory and empirical findings as well as differing approaches into a fruitful dialogue in order to better understand the role of discourse and grammar in the constitution of intersubjectivity.

Submissions for papers should follow the style guide of NJL available at http://journals.cambridge.org/NJL.
