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: Research in Applied Linguistics
Subtitle: Becoming a Discerning Consumer
Written By: Fred L. Perry
Description:

This text provides a solid introduction to the foundations of research
methods, with the goal of enabling students and professionals in the field
of applied linguistics to become not just casual consumers of research who
passively read bits and pieces of a research article, but discerning
consumers able to effectively use published research for practical purposes
in educational settings. All issues important for understanding and using
published research for these purposes are covered. Key principles are
illustrated with research studies published in refereed journals across a
wide spectrum of applied linguistics. Exercises distributed throughout the
text encourage readers to engage interactively with what they are reading
at the point when the information is fresh in their minds.

"Research in Applied Linguistics: Becoming a Discerning Consumer" is
designed as a text for courses in M.A.-TESOL/TEFL and applied linguistics
programs.
