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:

Rooted in Gricean tradition, this book concentrates on game- and

Introduction to GDT, with an overview of GDT pragmatics research to date
and its relation to semantics and to Gricean pragmatics is followed by
contributions offering a high-level survey of current GDT pragmatics and
the field of its applications, demonstrating that this approach provides a
sound basis for synchronic and diachronic explanations of language use.
