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: This article is an introduction to the cultural and linguistic status of the Pipil people of El Salvador. First, it discusses the most accepted hypotheses regarding the origin of this people, the Conquest, the Colony, and the continuous deterioration of their language and culture to their present state. Then a general description of the Pipil people and their language is given. Finally, a five component linguistic revitalization process is proposed for the reversion of the Pipil language shift.
