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: Tense-Aspect, Transitivity and Causativity
Edited By: Leonid Kulikov
Werner Abraham
Description:

This collection presents typological work on tense, aspect, and epistemic
modality in a variety of languages and against the background of different
schools of thinking, among which the St. Petersburg Typological School
developed and so masterfully implemented by the Petersburg linguist,
Vladimir Petrovich Nedjalkov. The volume honors this reputed scholar for
his life work. It is in mainly this spirit (and the EUROTYPE spirit) that
the following scholars have contributed to the volume: T.Tsunoda on
Warrungu (Australian indigeneous language), L. Kulikov on Vedic, K. Kiryu
on Japanese, Korean and Newari, N. Sumbatova on Svan (from the Kartvelian
group), T.Bulygina & A. Shmelev on Russian, W. Boeder on Georgian, R.
Thieroff on aorist and imperfect in European languages, Y. Poupynin on
Russian, L. Johanson on Kipchak Turkic, I. Dolinina on Russian, N.
Kozintseva on Old and Modern Eastern Armenian, Ch. Lee on Korean, W.
Abraham on split ergative languages and German, G. Silnitsky on Russian, V.
Plungian on Russian, E. Rakhilina on Russian, and K. Ebert on Kalmyk.
