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: Modern Mandarin Chinese Grammar
Written By: Claudia Ross
Jing-Heng Ma
Series Title: Modern Grammars
Description:

A brand new title for the Modern Grammars series to add to the existing
European Languages and to the forthcoming Japanese title. The grammar will
present Chinese as spoken in the People's Republic of China (specifically,
that spoken around Beijing) and give all examples in simplified characters,
traditional characters, romanization (pinyin) and in translation. It will
follow the series structure (two parts - one for grammar structures, one
for functions), with an accompanying workbook. Linguistic jargon will be
kept to a minimum throughout. We will also be creating an accompanying
homepage for the workbook with additional exercises (and a reporting system
enabling students to send their results to their tutors); this we hope will
go further to enhance the performance of the workbook.
