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."

Series Title: Literacies
Description:

Hiphop Literacies is an exploration of the rhetorical, language and
literacy practices of African Americans, with a focus on the Hiphop
generation. Richardson analyzes the lyrics and discourse of Hiphop,
explodes myths and stereotypes about Black culture and language and shows
how Hiphop language is a global ambassador of the English language and
American culture.

Richardson examines African American Hiphop in secondary oral contexts such
as rap music, song lyrics, electronic and digital media, oral performances
and cinema and brings together issues and concepts that are explored in the
disciplines of folklore, ethnomusicology, sociolinguistics, discourse
studies and New Literacies Studies.
