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."

Abstract: We studied Chinese concept-based information retrieval technology in Web. The research is sponsored by China national 863 project. The key idea is to use a concept network to guide user's search and browse. Both corpus-based statistical NLP technology and rule-based linguistics method is used to analyse the webpages from a website. Important concepts are identified, and the relationship between these concepts is calculated to form a concept network which is used for intelligent query expansion. The approach is data-driven so it is domain independent. The intelligent Chinese search engine based on this technology is successful, now the search engine are used by serval Websites, including the official website of Beijing government. The next step of our research is to develop intelligent search engine for E-commerce.
