A survey of Indo-European (IE) linguistics, intended for general linguists interested in learning about the most fully developed sub-area of historical linguistics and for language-area specialists interested in how specific language areas relate to IE as a whole.

The role of Areal linguistics is to explain what is not explainable by “genetic” historical linguistics. It is not a substitute but complementary to historical linguistics. It is the “diffusion” that constitutes the body of the study to explain linguistic similarities across distinct language families. Indian linguistic area is Author: Anvita Abbi. Linguistics.

In some areas with high linguistic diversity, a number of areal features have spread across a set of languages to form a sprachbund (also known as a linguistic area, convergence area or diffusion area). Some examples are the Balkan sprachbund, the Mainland Southeast Asia linguistic area, and the languages of the Indian subcontinent.

It also evaluates the extent to which cross-linguistic research on contact phenomena lives up to the standards of the typological enterprise in general, which does not Cited by: 7.
