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: Code-Switching in Conversation
Edited By: Peter Auer
Description:

Collecting contributions from a wide variety of international sociolinguistic settings in which this phenomenon of code-switching is observed, this volume addresses the structure, function and ideological value of such bilingual behavior. The contributors question many views of code-switching on the basis of many European and non-European contexts. By bringing together linguistic, anthropological and socio-psychological research, they move towards a more realistic conception of bilingual conversation.
