    Comparative linguistics (originally comparative philology) is a branch of historical linguistics that is concerned with comparing languages to establish their historical relatedness.. Genetic relatedness implies a common origin or proto-language and comparative linguistics aims to construct language families, to reconstruct proto-languages and specify the changes that have . While some practitioners of lexicostatistics worked to improve the methods (e.g., Embleton, ; Sankoff, ), they had lost the war. By this time, historical linguistics had largely rejected quantitative methods and lexicostatistics became a textbook example of how not to do linguistics.

Lexicostatistics is a method of comparative linguistics that involves comparing the percentage of lexical cognates between languages to determine their relationship.

By oftering a solution to these two problems genetic lexicostatistics suggests that we may be able to reconstruct man's linguistic past in a way not hitherto. This book considers how languages have traditionally been divided into families, and asks how they should classified in the future.

It describes and applies computer programs from biology and evolutionary genetics to data about languages and shows how the power of the computer can be harnessed to throw light on long-standing problems in historical linguistics.

The lack of coherence in historical linguistics reflects their addiction to a form of civil war in which each individual is preoccupied with defending his own. In order to automatically build phylogenetic trees, many researchers made use of a specific technique called lexicostatistics, which is an approach of comparative linguistics that involves.
