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: A Dictionary of Moroccan Arabic
Subtitle: Moroccan-English/English-Moroccan
Edited By: Richard S. Harrell
Harvey Sobelman
URL: http://press.georgetown.edu/detail.html?id=1589011031
Series Title: Georgetown Classics in Arabic Language and Linguistics
Description:

A Dictionary of Moroccan Arabic complements A Basic Course in Moroccan
Arabic (text and CDs) and A Short Reference Grammar of Moroccan Arabic. It presents, in an impressive range, the core vocabulary of everyday life in
Morocco-from the kitchen to the mosque, from the hardware store to the natural world of plants and animals. It contains myriad examples of usage, including formulaic phrases and idiomatic expressions. Understandable throughout the nation, it is based primarily on the standard dialect of
Moroccans from the cities of Fez, Rabat, and Casablanca. All Arabic citations are in an English transcription, making it invaluable to
English-speaking non-Arabists, travelers, and tourists-as well as being an important resource tool for students and scholars in the Arabic language-learning field.
