An Appraisal of the Linguistic Evidence in Relation to the Aryan Homeland Issue

2020 •

We review the linguistic arguments that do exist for the AIT, as well as those that have recently been developed in favour of the OIT by Satya Swarup Misra, Nicholas Kazanas, Shrikant Talageri, Igor Tonoyan-Belyayev, and ourselves. We argue that the findings of Historical and Comparative Linguistics are perfectly compatible with a scenario of Indo-European emigration from an Indian Homeland, and marginally even indicate it.

The basic question addressed by the 15 contributions to this volume can be formulated as follows:“To what extent is the family tree model useful in describing relationships between languages, and to what extent are the relationships shaped by areal diffusion rather than genealogical relatedness?” The papers were first presented at a 1998 workshop at Dixon and Aikhenvald’s Research Centre for Linguistic Typology, for which Dixon’s (1997) provocative essay on this topic served as the basis of the discussion.

Historical Linguistics – the study of language change – is a major field in linguistics. With its long history and numerous subfields of its own, Historical Linguistics provides challenges to both beginning students and scholars not specialized in this field. This Glossary meets these challenges by providing accessible and widely representative definitions, discussion, and examples of key terms and concepts used in the field. It is written by two well-known authorities in this field. The book is extremely valuable to anyone wishing to understand historical linguistic terminology and concepts. Key Features • A handy, easily understandable pocket guide, and a valuable companion for courses in Historical Linguistics, history of individual languages, history of linguistics, and for anyone curious about how and why languages change
