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: Researching Second Language Classrooms
Written By: Sandra Lee McKay
Series Title: ESL & Applied Linguistics Professional Series
Description:

This text introduces teachers to research methods they can use to examine
their own classrooms in order to become more effective teachers. Becoming
familiar with classroom-based research methods not only enables teachers to
do research in their own classrooms, it also provides a basis for assessing
the findings of existing research. McKay emphasizes throughout that what a
teacher chooses to examine will dictate which method is most effective.
Each chapter includes activities to help readers apply the methods
described in the chapter, often by analyzing research data.

"Researching Second Language Classrooms" is an ideal text for TESOL
research methods courses and an essential resource for inservice teachers
who wish to undertake classroom research.
