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: Computational and Quantitative Studies
Written By: Michael A. K. Halliday
Jonathan J. Webster
Description:

In the course of his career, Professor Halliday has continued to address
the issue of the application of linguistic scholarship for computational
and quantitative studies. The sixth volume in the collected works of
Professor M. A. K. Halliday includes works that span the last five decades,
covering such topics as machine translation: the early years; and
probabilistic grammar. The last section of this volume includes 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 Collected Works of M. A. K. Halliday is a series that brings together
Halliday's publications in many branches of linguistics, both theoretical
and applied (a distinction which he himself rejects), including grammar and
semantics, discourse analysis and stylistics, phonology, sociolinguistics,
computational linguistics, language education, and child language development.
