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: The Language of Work
Written By: Almut Koester
Series Title: Intertext
Description:

The Language of Work examines how language is used in business and the workplace, looking at a range of situations and data: from meetings to negotiations, official reports to emails between colleagues. The book explores representations of work in job adverts, TV programs and advertising and looks at the way people in business interact through small talk, politeness, customer care and management-employee relationships.

It is illustrated with lively examples taken from the real world and includes a full glossary and features a useful section on entering the world of work, including advice on CV writing, job interviews and developing 'transferable skills'.
