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: Applying Conversation Analysis
Edited By: Keith Richards
Paul Seedhouse
Description:

This book explores the relationship between conversation analysis and
applied linguistics, demonstrating how the analysis of institutional talk
can contribute to professional practice. With a foreword by Paul Drew, the
core of the collection brings together researchers from a wide range of
applied areas: dealing with topics such as language impairment and speech
therapy, medical general practice, retailing, cross-cultural training,
radio journalism, higher education and language teaching and learning.

More and more academics and professionals now recognise the contribution
that conversation analysis can make to their work. However, up to now there
has been little attempt to explore the important relationship between this
exciting and rapidly growing field and applied linguistics. The
contributions to this collection, all written from the analytic
perspective of CA, bring together experts from a range of professional
fields in order to demonstrate how CA can make a significant contribution
to professional practice.

As well as appealing to researchers and students in applied linguistics and
the social sciences, the book's practical orientation will also make it
valuable to specialists in a range of fields, including speech therapy,
health communication, retailing, journalism and language teaching. The
combination of academic and analytic rigour with strong practical relevance
makes the collection essential reading for anyone with a serious interest
in professional talk.
