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: The work collects all the anthropological and archaeological evidence relating to the spread of human settlements and to the population dynamics in the territory of Acqui Terme (AL - Italy) during the Iron Age, starting from the last phase of the Bronze Age and arriving to the beginning of the process of Romanization in the North-Western Italy. The analysis is developed through the study of the dynamics of 'macro-system' inherent in Northern Italy. The paper is linked to the linguistic study of the Toponymy (Toponomastics) of this area of the ancient Liguria and is aimed at pointing out the relationships between the population dynamics and the naming process of the places especially in the proto-historic ages.
