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: Phonology in Perception
Edited By: Paul Boersma

Series Title: Phonology and Phonetics [PP] 15
Description:

The book consists of nine chapters dealing with the interaction of speech
perception and phonology. Rather than accepting the common assumption that
perceptual considerations influence phonological behaviour, the book aims
to investigate the reverse direction of causation, namely the extent to
which phonological knowledge guides the speech perception process.

Most of the chapters discuss formalizations of the speech perception
process that involve ranked phonological constraints. Theoretical
frameworks argued for are Natural Phonology, Optimality Theory, and the
Neigbourhood Activation Model. The book discusses the perception of
segments, stress, and intonation in the fields of loanword adaptation,
second language acquisition, and sound change.

The book is of interest to phonologists, phoneticians and psycholinguists
working on the phonetics-phonology interface, and to everybody who is
interested in the idea that phonology is not production alone.
