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: In oral and to a lesser extent in written speech, the meaning of a word component may be repeated within the same utterance. The process, which is productive and complex, is called tautological doubling. I claim in this paper that tautological doubling is structured in the form of radial networks. Greek morphology, that allows word components to be attached to the beginning of words, and to a lesser extent English morphology, seem to allow the process. A contrastive analysis between the two languages is conducted, which is conceptually based.
