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."

The news interview has become a major vehicle for presenting broadcast news

development in the United States and Britain. It discusses the fundamental
norms and conventions that shape conduct in the modern interview, including
the linguistic and interactional practices of journalists. Through analyses
of well-known interviews, the book explores the relationship between
journalists and public figures, and reveals the tensions lying beneath the
surface of the nightly news.
