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: Teaching Academic Writing
Subtitle: A Toolkit for Higher Education
Written By: Caroline Coffin
Joan Swann
Ann Hewings
Theresa Lillis
Mary Jane Curry
Sharon Goodman
Description:

Teaching Academic Writing is a 'toolkit' to help higher education lecturers and tutors teach student writing.
Containing a range of diverse teaching strategies, the book offers both practical activities to help students develop their writing skills, and guidelines to help lecturers and tutors think in more depth about the feedback they give to students.
Recognising that different academic disciplines ask their students to be fluent in different styles of writing, the authors explore a wide variety of text types, from essays and reflective diaries to research projects and laboratory reports. The book draws on recent research and takes into account developments such as the increasing diversity of the student body, the use of the Internet, electronic tuition, and issues surrounding globalisation.
