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: English morphology and word-formation
Subtitle: An introduction
Written By: Hans-Jörg Schmid
URL: http://www.ESV.info/978-3-503-12248-6
Series Title: Grundlagen der Anglistik und Amerikanistik, Band 25
Description:

Serving as a basic introduction to the field of English morphology and word-
formation, this book also tries to advance the state-of-the-art in this field in a
number of respects. The author takes his readers gently through the basic
notions in English morphology and word-formation and discusses problematic
areas and definitorial questions. All chapters are approached systematically
from three different angles focusing on structural, cognitive and sociopragmatic
aspects of the field. In this way, new perspectives are opened particularly on
the development and establishment of new complex words, on the cognitive
functions of word-formation patterns and on the field of conversion.
