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."

Description:

Rhetoric and stylistics deal with successful human communication and the
arrangement of language in texts. As the most influential of all
language-related disciplines, rhetoric has an ancient tradition and is
presently experiencing a remarkable revival. Stylistics analyzes the
structures of texts with regard to their semantic potential and their
function in the life of the individual and in society. The handbook offers
surveys of theoretical approaches, forms of linguistic practice and
practical contexts from antiquity to the present.
