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."

Title: Exploring the Spanish Language
Written By: Christopher J. Pountain
URL: http://www.oup.com/us/catalog/general/?view=usa&ci=034071946X
Description:

This book offers an introduction to the structures and varieties of
Spanish, covering all the major levels of linguistic forecasting:
considerable attention is paid to Judeo-Spanish and creoles. No previous
knowledge of linguistics is assumed and a glossary of technical terms, in
conjunction with exercises and activities, helps to reinforce key points.
The book is written specifically with English-speaking learners of Spanish
in mind, and readers will find a good deal of practical help in developing
skills such as pronunciation and the appropriate use of register.
