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: Kartwelisches Etymologisches Wörterbuch
Written By: Heinz Fähnrich
URL: http://www.brill.nl/default.aspx?partid=18&pid=28734
Series Title: Handbook of Oriental Studies, Section 8: Uralic & Central Asian Studies, 18
Description:

This dictionary offers a complete compilation and a historical-comparative
reflection of the hereditary lexis of the Kartvelian (South Caucasian)
language family. With this significantly enlarged (e.g. more than a
thousand new etymologies) and revised successor of Surab Sardsheweladse's
and Heinz Fähnrich's earlier dictionary (Brill, 1995) the author here
represents the latest stage of etymological research.

The dictionary contains a wealth of new lexical entries, corrections of
earlier attempts and new reconstructions. The introduction provides a
survey of general data of the four Kartvelian languages (Georgian,
Mingrelian, Laz, Svan), characterizes the historical-comparative research
in short and provides a detailed description of the system of regular
phoneme correspondences in its newest form. The main part presents the
Kartvelian lexis in separate entries. The reconstructed forms of the root-
and affix morphemes are listed in alphabetical order of the Georgian script
followed by instances of the Kartvelian languages. Each entry covers the
phonological development of the lexical item from its original form to its
present state and is amply supplemented by references.
