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: Web Advertising
Subtitle: New forms of communication on the Internet
Written By: Anja Janoschka
URL: http://www.benjamins.com/cgi-bin/t_bookview.cgi?bookid=P%26bns%20131
Series Title: Pragmatics & Beyond New Series 131
Description:

This book examines new forms of communication that have emerged through the
interactive capabilities of the Internet, in particular online advertising
and web advertisements. It develops a new model of online communication,
incorporating mass communication and interpersonal communication.
Interactive mass communication redefines the roles of online communication
partners who are confronted with a higher degree of complexity in terms of
hypertextual information units. In web advertising, this new aspect of
interactivity is linguistically reflected in different types of personal
address forms, directives, and "trigger words". This study also analyzes
the different strategies of persuasion with which web ads try to initiate
their activation.

Web Advertising provides essential information on the language of web
advertisements for academics, researchers and students in the fields of
hypertext-linguistics, advertising, communication and media studies.
