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: Washback in Language Testing
Subtitle: Research Contexts and Methods
Edited By: Liying Cheng

Andy Curtis
Description:

"Washback" refers to the influence of language testing on teaching and
learning. This volume, at the important intersection of language testing
and teaching practices, presents theoretical, methodological, and practical
guidance for current and future washback studies. It provides an overview
of the complexity of washback and the various contextual factors entangled
within testing, teaching, and learning and presents empirical studies from
around the world that offer insights into the effects of washback in
specific educational contexts and models of research on which future
studies can be based.

"Washback in Language Testing: Research Contexts and Methods" is a valuable
resource for those who are interested in the application of findings to
actual teaching and learning situations or conduct washback research in
their own contexts, including educational and psychological testing
experts, alternative assessment people in all fields, and policy- and
decision-makers in educational and testing organizations.
