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: Intercultural Language Use and Language Learning
Edited By: Maria Pilar Safont Jordà
URL: http://www.springer.com/978-1-4020-5635-2
Description:

*Includes well known names in applied linguistics
*Contains original empirical studies dealing with ELF and bilingual learners
*Up-to-date discussion of intercultural theory and research
*Links intercultural research to language learning and teaching

This volume addresses an issue that deserves further attention: that of
intercultural learners in instructed language contexts. The book focuses on
English learners as intercultural speakers. In so doing, the volume brings
together three main research areas: those of the study of English as a
lingua franca, the development of communicative competence and the use and
acquisition of a language beyond a second one in instructed contexts.
