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
ICSG has its institutional base in the Faculty of Arts, University of Ibadan, Ibadan. The Studies Group which is made up of scholars drawn from different universities in Nigeria and with bias in cultural studies, is motivated by purposes which include the promotion of folklore scholarship and academic excellence and making cultural scholarship breakthrough its seemingly rigid boundary in order to encourage and embrace a more lively and relevant inter-disciplinary discourse. The Studies Group aims among others to promote the extension of the frontiers of cultural scholarship, formulation of explanatory models, searching for a more adequate theory or set of theories for the purpose of application and facilitation through organized seminars, symposia, workshops, international conferences, and through publication of ISESE: Ibadan Journal of Folklore, ISESE Monograph Series, ISESE Study Series (Classroom Textbooks) and encouragement of budding creative writers.
