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."

Linguistic LingField(s):  Language Documentation

Query:   I am conducting a survey on issues surrounding using an intermediary language (i.e. a language that is not the linguist's mother tongue) to do linguistic fieldwork and analysis. Specifically, I am interested in the impact of the intermediary language on analyzing field data.

If you have conducted linguistic fieldwork using an intermediary language, I would be very grateful if you would complete this survey. It should take no longer than 15 minutes to complete, and the data will not be linked to your identity in any way. The survey may be found here:

Thank you,
