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: Computational and Quantitative Studies
Written By: Michael A. K. Halliday
Edited By: Jonathan J. Webster
Series Title: Collected Works of M. A. K. Halliday
Description:

For nearly half a century, Professor M. A. K. Halliday has been enriching the discipline of linguistics with his keen insights into the social semiotic phenomenon we call language. This ten-volume series presents the seminal works of Professor Halliday.

Throughout his career Professor Halliday has continued to address the issue of the application of linguistic scholarship to Computational and
uantitative Studies. The sixth volume in the collected works of Professor
M. A. K. Halliday includes works that span the last five decades, covering developments in machine translation and corpus linguistics. Also included is discussion of recent collaborative efforts bringing together those working in systemic functional grammar, fuzzy logic and "intelligent computing", engaging in what Halliday refers to as computing with meaning.
The principles and methods outlined in these papers remain as relevant today as when they were first published, continuing to point the way forward in an endeavour where success depends more on advancing our knowledge of language than machines.
