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: Linguistic Diversity and Teaching
Written By: Nancy L. Commins
Ofelia B. Miramontes
Series Title: A Volume in the Reflective Teaching and the Social Conditions of Schooling Series
Description:

"Linguistic Diversity and Teaching" raises questions and provides a context
for reflection regarding the complex issues surrounding new English
learners in the schools. These issues exist within a highly charged
political climate and involve not only language, but also culture, class,
ethnicity, and the persistent inequities that characterize our educational
system. The text addresses these issues through conversations among
experts, practitioners, and readers that are informed by representative
case studies and by a range of theoretical approaches. It is designed to
engage readers in beginning to evolve their own practical theories, to help
them explore and perhaps modify some basic beliefs and assumptions, and
to become acquainted with other points of view. Throughout, readers are
encouraged to interact with the text and to develop their own perspective
on the issue of linguistic diversity and teaching. This is the fourth
volume in "Reflective Teaching and the Social Conditions of Schooling: A
Series for Prospective and Practicing Teachers", edited by Daniel P. Liston
and Kenneth M. Zeichner. It follows the same format as previous volumes in
the series.
