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: The Ecology and Semiotics of Language Learning
Subtitle: A Sociocultural Perspective
Series Title: Educational Linguistics 3
Description:

The ecological perspective on language and language education has in recent
years become a major focus of interest in the fields of second language
teaching and learning, and linguistics and education in general. This is
the first book-length attempt to provide a comprehensive overview of an
ecology of language learning, including both theoretical discussions on
language, semiotics, emergence, and self, and the practical consequences of
an ecological view for classroom work.

This book is of interest to all language educators, second and foreign
language teachers and researchers, and other education professionals.
