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 paper investigates why TestDaF - the officially certified and recognized university entrance exam proofing sufficient knowledge of the German language which is comparable to TOEFL - is only insignificantly made use of by Japanese students in Japan intending to take up a study at universities in German speaking countries. On the other hand, there is an evident disparity regarding Japanese students outside Japan who outnumber their fellow-examinees back home more then ten times.
