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."

Abstract: O termo 'ontologia' é frequentemente usado no âmbito da Ciência da Computação para referir-se a uma 'especificação [...] de uma conceptualização' (Gruber, 1993: 2). Mas será de conceitos que a ontologia trata? Smith, por exemplo, que tem vindo a desenvolver o seu trabalho sobre ontologias no âmbito da biomedicina argumenta que as ontologias, pelo menos as ontologias científicas de domínio específico e científico, não tratam de conceitos mas de universais. Este artigo tem por objectivo analisar os termos usados por diferentes autores, que têm vindo a contribuir para o estudo das ontologias, de forma a encontrar um denominador comum.
