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: Calls for more holistic sociolinguistics have increased in recent years, especially ones that enable multi-level approaches to the interpretation of language use. This paper shows how such an approach was used to examine code choice in an Indonesian urban setting. In particular it looks at and compares code choice in a low income neighbourhood and a middle-income neighbourhood of Semarang, the provincial capital of Central Java. I show that patterns of language exchange are different to what we might expect, especially as they relate to inter-ethnic conversations. I account for these patterns using ethnographic data.
