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: Harvey Sacks: Social Science and Conversation Analysis
Written By: David Silverman
Description:

This is the first book-length introduction to the work of Harvey Sacks, a highly influential sociologist who prior to his tragic death in 1975 developed the theories that came to be known as Conversation Analysis and ethnomethodology --theories that have grown to become extremely popular within linguistics, sociology, psychology and anthropology. This volume should be of interest to both students and scholars of Conversation Analysis and Sacks' work.
