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."


Book Information

   

Title: Narrative Counselling
Subtitle: Social and Linguistic Processes of Change
Written By: Peter Muntigl
URL: http://www.benjamins.com/cgi-bin/t_bookview.cgi?bookid=DAPSAC%2011
Series Title: Discourse Approaches to Politics, Society and Culture 11
Description:

What actually happens in counselling interactions?

How does counselling bring about change?

How do clients end up producing new and alternative stories of their lives and relationships?

By addressing these questions and others, Peter Muntigl explores the narrative counselling process in the context where it is enacted: the unfolding conversation between counsellor and clients. Through a transdisciplinary approach that combines conversation analysis and systemic functional linguistic theory, Muntigl demonstrates how language is used in couples counselling, how language use changes over the course of counselling, and how this process provides clients with new linguistic resources that help them change their social relationships.

This book will be a valuable resource not only for linguists and discourse analysts, but also for researchers and practitioners in the fields of counselling, psychotherapy, psychology, and medicine.
