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: Gendered Discourse in the Professional Workplace
Written By: Loise Mullany
URL: http://www.palgrave.com/products/title.aspx?PID=274997
Series Title: Palgrave Studies in Professional and Organizational Discourse
Description:

Despite the inroads that women have made into the professions in recent
years, the glass ceiling is just as persistent as ever. Gendered Discourse
in the Professional Workplace aims to investigate the crucial role that
gendered discourses play in perpetuating workplace gender inequalities. A
range of interactional sociolinguistic data is analysed from ethnographic
case studies of businesses in which women and men managers perform a range
of stereotypical gendered speech styles when enacting their professional
identities. These interactions are scrutinized as part of a broader
interdisciplinary framework for analysis, which enables language, gender
and power to be scrutinized at both local and global levels. The importance
of academic research being of practical relevance to the community under
study and wider society as a whole is firmly emphasized, and practical
guidelines for conducting future projects are presented.
