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."

Series Title: Benjamins Current Topics 2
Description:

A common framework under which the various studies on terminology
processing can be viewed is to consider not only the texts from which the
terminological resources are built but particularly the applications
targeted. The current book, first published as a Special Issue of
Terminology (11:1, 2005), analyses the influence of applications on term
definition and processing. Two types of applications have been identified:
intermediary and terminal applications (involving end users). Intermediary
applications concern the building of terminological knowledge resources
such as domain-specific dictionaries, ontologies, thesaurus or taxonomies.
These knowledge resources then form the inputs to terminal applications
such as information extraction, information retrieval, science and
technology watch or automated book index building. Most of the applications
dealt with in the book fall into the first category. This book represents
the first attempt, from a pluridisciplinary viewpoint, to take into account
the role of applications in the processing of terminology.
