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: Intonation Systems
Edited By: Daniel Hirst
Albert Di Cristo
URL: http://www.cambridge.org/catalogue/catalogue.asp?isbn=0521395135
Description:

This is the first comprehensive study of the intonation of different
languages of the world, written by a team of leading scholars in the field,
most of whom are native speakers of the language in question. Surveying
twenty languages, the volume introduces a new system for the multilingual
transcription of intonation patterns. The chapters are organized following
the same general outline to highlight the differences among languages. The
emphasis is on description and comparison, rather than on theory, making
this an invaluable sourcebook for researchers in the field.
