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: A Paradigm Lost. The Linguistic Theory of Mikolay Kruszewski
Written By: Williams Joanna
Description:

Argues that Kruszewski's major work Ocerk nauki o jazyke ('An Outline of the Science of Language) had the potential to be seminal to the field, but because of historical factors, including his early death and the simultaneous consolidation of the Neo-grammarian paradigm, this did not happen.
