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 Language of Belonging
Written By: Ulrike Hanna Hanna
Dariusz Galasiński
Series Title: Language and Globalisation
Description:

The authors address one of the most significant aspects of social life in
our times: that of cultural identities and identifications, and of the ways
we construct them through our speech and the narrative of ourselves and
others. They combine a theoretical re-assessment of how we understand,
study and analyze processes of identification with detailed case studies of
the discourses of three-generation families living in split-border
communities along the former 'Iron Curtain', talking about themselves and
other social groups, about their way of life and their experiences past and
present.
