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: Ozbib: A Linguistic Bibliography of Aboriginal Australia and the Torres Strait Islands
Written By: Lois Carrington
Geraldine Triffitt
Description:

This bibliography aims to include all published works on Australiana and Torres Strait Islands languages and linguistics, with the addition of relevant theses. There is a natural watershed in the listing, in that prior to 1959 emphasis is on vocabularies, texts, or songs, whereas for the past 40 years the emphasis is on linguistics and applied linguistics: analysis and comparisons, dictionaries and grammars, surveys, works on bilingual education, language policy, pidgins and crioles and Aboriginal English.
