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: Bilingual Lexicography from a Communicative Perspective
Written By: Heming Yong
Jing Peng
Series Title: Terminology and Lexicography Research and Practice 9
Description:

This stimulating new book, as the premier work introducing bilingual
lexicography from a communicative perspective, is launched to represent
original thinking and innovative theorization in the field of bilingual
lexicography. It treats the bilingual dictionary as a system of
intercultural communication and bilingual dictionary making as a dynamic
process realized by sets of choices, characterizing the overall nature of
the dictionary. It examines the dictionary and dictionary making by using a
model of lexicography which stresses the three-way relationship of
compiler, dictionary text and user, and incorporates them into a unified
coherent framework. Throughout the study, special focus is on English and
Chinese bilingual lexicography. It will serve not only as a valuable guide
to those interested in dictionary compilation and theoretical inquiries but
also as a textbook for undergraduate and postgraduate courses in bilingual
lexicography.
