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: Research on Politeness in the Spanish-Speaking World
Edited By: María Elena Placencia
Carmen García
Description:

One of the main contributions of this important book is that it offers a
thorough survey of the theoretical and empirical developments that have
occurred in the area of (im)politeness in different regions of the
Spanish-speaking world. Additionally, the book advances the field with new
empirical research on linguistic (im)politeness, and silence and
(im)politeness, in a range of (non)institutional contexts, as well as with
new perspectives for the study of (im)politeness. A closing chapter by the
editors provides an assessment of salient trends in the area and directions
for future research.

"Research on Politeness in the Spanish-Speaking World" is essential reading
for senior undergraduates and graduate students in Spanish pragmatics and
Spanish linguistics, sociolinguistics, and discourse analysis. The volume
is also very useful to English-speaking scholars in the general field of
pragmatics who are not proficient in Spanish but require access to these
empirical studies.
