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."

Series Title: Studies in Semitic Language & Linguistics
Description:

This volume brings together 22 contributions to the study of Arabic
dialects, from the Maghreb to Iraq by authors, who are all well-known for
their work in this field. It underscores the importance of different
theoretical approaches to the study of dialects, developing new frameworks
for the study of variation and change in the dialects, while presenting new
data on dialects (e.g., of Jaffa, Southern Sinai, Nigeria, South Morocco
and Mosul) and cross-dialectal comparisons (e.g., on the feminine gender
and on relative clauses). This collection is presented to Manfred Woidich,
one of the most eminent scholars in the field of Arabic dialectology.
