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:

Le malgache est une langue agglutinative du groupe Malayo-polynésien.
L'alphabet le plus en usage à Madagascar est l'alphabet latin qui fut
introduit en 1820 par les missionnaires de la Société de Londres. Cet Essai
de grammaire a été spécialment écrit pour nos étudiants. La classification
des racines et des verbes, la formation des dérivés et leurs variations
toniques ont été étudiées en détail à leur intention (de la préface de
l'édition 1903).

Table des matières: De l'alphabet, de l'orthographe, des mots, des racines,
des verbes et préfixes verbaux, du relatif, des auxiliaires et particules,
de l'article, du substantif, du cas, du pronom, de l'adjectif, des noms de
nombre, de l'adverbe, de la préposition, de la conjunction, de
l'interjection, appendice.

In his grammar Gabriel Ferrand - a member of the Société Asiatique and the

re-edition has been published as no. 02 in the LINCOM Gramatica (LINGram)
