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: Relevant Linguistics, 2nd Edition, Revised and Expanded
Subtitle: An Introduction to the Structure and Use of English for Teachers
Written By: Paul W. Justice
Description:

The revised and expanded edition of Relevant Linguistics provides a straightforward, accessible introduction to the basics of English phonetics, phonology, morphology, morphophonology, and syntax for education students and all non-linguistics majors. This textbook addresses the growing need to familiarize classroom teachers and other non-linguistics students with the structure and use of language. In particular, teacher training programs are beginning to realize the importance of linguistics as linguistic diversity in schools rises. Most teacher trainees find themselves in a linguistics classroom at some point during their education.

This book is designed to provide teachers with a foundation of linguistic knowledge and, more importantly, the skills to respond to whatever linguistic situations might arise in their classrooms. Each chapter leads students through descriptive analyses of examples from English, helps them grasp linguistic concepts, and provides them with reference materials for future classes they will teach. Building on the highly popular first edition, the present edition contains more exercises, expanded and clarified explanations of issues, and additional references to areas such as the history of English and semantics.
