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."

Query:   DEAR LINGUISTS,

I AM PUTTING TOGETHER A BIBLIOGRAPHY ON GENETIC CLASSIFICATION AND AREAL LINGUISTICS. MY STARTING POINT IS M. RUHLEN'S A GUIDE TO THE WORLD'S LANGUAGES, BUT I WOULD APPRECIATE ANY SUGGESTIONS OF MORE RECENT BOOKS OF ARTICLES. IF YOU SPECIALIZE IN A SPECIFIC LANGUAGEE FAMILY, I WOULD ALSO APPRECIATE SUGGESTIONS ON WORK THAT I SHOULD NOT OVERLOOK. I AM TRYING TO INCLUDE ALL PROPOSED GENETIC/AREAL CLASSIFICATIONS, INCLUDING NOSTRATIC, AMERIND, WORK BY GREENBERG AND SHEVOROSHKIN, ETC.

I WOULD APPRECIATE ANY IDEAS YOU HAVE AND I WILL POST A SUMMARY.
