Omtale Historical Linguistics
This book goes beyond the boundaries of a standard text, using controversial and compelling ideas to explore the relationship between fundamental concepts in historical linguistics.



An original and engaging introduction to the subject of historical linguistics





Presents controversial but compelling ideas in developing a clear understanding as to why historical linguistics has had significant success in some domains, such as phonological history, and why it is considerably less successful in others





Explores the relationship between fundamental concepts in historical linguistics, topics such as 'language' and 'change', and corresponding notions in contemporary (synchronic) linguistic theory





Features extensive discussion of traditional and theoretically-oriented historical work in the domains of phonology and syntax.
