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."


Book Information

   

Title: Aspects of Cognitive Ethnolinguistics
Written By: Jerzy Bartmiński
Edited By: Joerg Zinken
Series Title: Advances in Cognitive Linguistics
Description:

The book provides an introduction into a highly developed, coherent, and
extensively tested cognitive linguistic approach to lexical semantics,
which is not currently accessible to readers of English. This makes the
book important to researchers and students in lexical semantics, in
Cognitive Linguistics and beyond. It also strengthens the Cognitive
Linguistics enterprise in general, by showing that the main tenets of this
approach are not an incidental historical development in a particular
corner of the world, but rather are arrived at by scholars working in
hugely different contexts independently of each other. The book should
therefore have an appeal to all researchers in Cognitive Linguistics.
Furthermore, the book constitutes a contribution to the intellectual
exchange between international academic discourses that mostly develop
independently of each other – an exchange that has often provided major
impetus for scientific development, as illustrated by the influence of the
belated translations of works by Bakhtin, Lotman, Vygotsky, and Luria,
among others.
