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:

This volume assembles a significant number of selected papers that were
presented at the 22nd edition of Going Romance, held at the University of
Groningen in December 2008. Though it contains a variety of topics, 'tense,
mood and aspect' is represented most extensively. This volume contains a rich
variety of Romance languages: Cape Verdean, European Portuguese, French,
Italian, Romanian and Spanish. The collection of papers is representative
of the
research carried out nowadays on Romance languages within theoretical
linguistics and shows the vitality of this research.
