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."

Title: The Articulate Mammal
Written By: Jean Aitchison
Description:

This highly successful text has been substantially revised to take account of the considerable changes in Chomsky's recent ideas. The chapters on grammatical innateness, child language acquisition, and speech comprehension have been largely rewritten and new material and references throughout the book make it completely up-to-date with key developments in the field.
