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."


Book Information

   

Title: Studies in Chinese Language
Written By: Michael A. K. Halliday
Edited By: Jonathan J. Webster
Description:

Studies in Chinese Language, the eighth volume in the collected works of
Professor M.A.K. Halliday, approaches the Chinese language from several
interesting vantage points, ranging from studies of medieval to modern
grammar, and also covering topics related to Chinese phonology, grammar and
discourse. Professor Halliday’s PhD thesis provided the basis for the first
paper in this volume, "The Language of the Chinese 'Secret History of the
Mongols'" (with examples from the book on CD-ROM). The final section on
"Grammar and discourse" includes papers looking at grammatical metaphor and
scientific discourse in both Chinese and English.
