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: Texts and Practices - Readings in Critical Discourse Analysis
Edited By: Carmen Rosa Caldas-Coulthard
Malcolm Coulthard
Description:

TEXTS AND PRACTICES provides an essential introduction to the theory and practice of Critical Discourse Analysis. The essays demonstrate how Critical Discourse Analysis can be applied to a variety of written and spoken texts, by deconstructing data from a range of contexts, countries and spheres and exposing hidden patterns of discrimination and inequalities of power. TEXTS AND PRACTICES, which includes specially commissioned papers from a range of distinguished authors, provides a state-of-the-art introduction to Critical Discourse Analysis, making it an important contribution to this developing field.
