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: Towards a "Natural" Narratology
Written By: Monika Fludernik
URL: http://www.routledge.com/books/details/9780415585637/
Description:

In this ground breaking work of synthesis, Monika Fludernik combines
insights from literary theory and linguistics to provide a challenging new
theory of narrative.

This book is both an historical survey and theoretical study, with the
author drawing on an enormous range of examples from the earliest oral
study to contemporary experimental fiction. She uses these examples to
prove that recent literature, far from heralding the final collapse of
narrative, represents the epitome of a centuries long developmental process.
