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: Expertise in Second Language Learning and Teaching
Edited By: Keith Johnson
URL: http://www.palgrave.com/products/Catalogue.aspx?is=1403920966
Description:

Understanding what constitutes expertise in language learning and teaching
is important for theoretical reasons related to psycholinguistic, and
applied linguistic, enquiry. It also has many significant applications in
practice, particularly in relation to the training and practice of language
teachers and improvements in students' strategies of learning. In this
volume, methodologies for establishing what constitutes expert practice are
discussed and the contributions address the fields of listening, reading,
writing, speaking and communication strategies, looking at common
characteristics of the 'expert teacher' and the 'expert learner'.
