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: Growing up Bilingual
Subtitle: Puerto Rican Children in New York
Written By: Ana Celia Zentella
URL: http://www.blackwellpublishing.com/book.asp?ref=9781557864079
Description:

This book provides an inside view of the social construction of
bilingualism in one of the largest and most disadvantaged Spanish-speaking
groups in the United States. It walks readers through a New York Puerto
Rican Community and describes the five varieties of Spanish and English
that constitute the community's bilingual and multi-dialectal repertoire,
the four major communication patterns that predominate in the homes of
twenty families with children, and the syntactic features and discourse
strategies of so-called "Spanglish".
