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."

Edited By: Tor Anders Åfarli
Fufen Jin
URL: http://butikk.tapirforlag.no/en/node/1232
Description:

As globalization and the enhanced international role of China make contact
between China and Norway deeper and more frequent, problems of language -
being an essential part of the infrastructure of society - are brought to
the fore.

This book focuses on the grammatical structure of Mandarin Chinese and
Norwegian from a comparative and acquisitional point of view, also
investigating the role of English as an international lingua franca
mediating between the two.
