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: Language Development and Education
Subtitle: Children with Varying Language Experiences
Written By: Paula Menyuk
Maria Estela Brisk
Description:

We now know much more about the process of language development in all
children, and also much more about variations in the process due to
multi-cultural and multi-linguistic backgrounds, and developmental
anomalies. The book describes both the remarkable changes in language
knowledge and use that occur from infancy through high school, and also the
differences in the process due to variations in experience. What has been
found to be good educational practice during each of these stages is
discussed, emphasising that among other things, good practice involves
awareness of, and planning for, diversity in the abilities of children.
