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: Mediae Latinitatis Lexicon Minus
Subtitle: Lexique latin médiéval - Medieval Latin Dictionary - Mittellateinisches Wörterbuch
Written By: J.F. Niermeyer
C. van de Kieft

Description:

Niermeyer's Mediae Latinitatis Lexicon Minus is a highly practical lexicon,
providing researchers, teaching staff and students in the field of Medieval
History with concise, essential information.

This new edition is still the “compendious lexicon for rapid information”
envisaged by Niermeyer, but current entries and definitions have been
revised and new entries have been added. Furthermore, the dictionary is now
enhanced with German definitions and therefore provides French, English and
German translations for every entry of a Medieval Latin concept. All
entries are contextualized with relevant text passages.
In view of the new entries and additional German definitions, the new
edition is bound into two durable hardback volumes.

The Niermeyer Lexicon Minus has proved to be invaluable to medievalists for
almost 50 years and is an indispensable working tool for academic libraries.

The revised Lexicon is published simultaneously by Brill, Leiden and
Wissenschaftliche Buchgesellschaft (WBG), Darmstadt (WBG only distributes
to its members).
