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."
Die Adjektiv-Adverb-Abgrenzung im Deutschen [Adjective-Adverb-Demarcation in German]
The demarcation between adjectives and adverbs has been a matter of ongoing controversy in German linguistics. This book starts by presenting traditional options for categorizing words such as schnell [quick/ly] and sofort [immediate/ly]. Building on this history, it proposes a model of parts of speech that integrates lexicography and word formation research to include adjective-adverb connections in addition to strict categorization.
