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: Spanish in Contact
Subtitle: Policy, Social and Linguistic Inquiries
Edited By: Kim Potowski
Richard Cameron
URL: http://www.benjamins.com/cgi-bin/t_bookview.cgi?bookid=Impact%2022
Series Title: IMPACT: Studies in Language and Society 22
Description:

This volume, covering a range of topics such as Spanish as a heritage
language in the United States, policy issues, pragmatics and language
contact, sociolinguistic variation and contact, and Bozal (Creole) Spanish,
will serve the interests of linguists, educators, and policy makers alike.
It provides cutting edge research on varieties of Spanish spoken by
children, teenagers, and adults in places as diverse as Chicago, New York,
New Mexico, and Houston; Valencia and Galicia; the Andean highlands; and
the border between Haiti and the Dominican Republic. The emphasis is on
spoken Spanish, although researchers also investigate code-switching in the
lyrics of bachata songs and the presence of creole in Cuban and Brazilian
literature. This collection will be of interest wherever Spanish is spoken.
