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: Globalization and Language in the Spanish Speaking World
Subtitle: Macro and Micro Perspectives
Written By: Clare Mar-Molinero
Miranda Stewart
URL: http://www.palgrave.com/newsearch/Catalogue.aspx?is=0230000185
Series Title: Language and Globalization
Description:

This volume considers, at global and at local levels, the spread of Spanish
today and particularly its role in the face of processes of globalization.
Spanish is frequently the dominant language in this contact situation. But
how contested is its hegemony; and how far does contact with it threaten
other languages? How are these other, weaker, minoritized languages
prospering in a world where a few strong, global languages may be taking
over their linguistic domains?
