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: Working with the Phonetics of English and Dutch
Written By: Beverley S Collins

Description:

Working with the Phonetics of English and Dutch is a workbook intended to
be used in conjunction with The Phonetics of English and Dutch (Brill,
1996). (An accompanying cassette is available on request from the authors
at a nominal charge). The workbook contains twenty-four English and Dutch
passages in phonemic transcription. Keys are provided for fifteen dictated
passages (recorded on the cassette). An additional fifty passages, printed
in conventional orthography, are included (for which transcription keys are
obtainable for recognised teachers on request).
The book also includes fifteen allophonic descriptions of English words and
phrases. These provide a useful exercise for students learning articulatory
phonetics in relation to English. Transcripts are provided for twelve
representative varieties of British and Irish English (which have been
recorded on the accompanying cassette). The accents illustrated are: London
(Cockney), Bristol, Birmingham, Manchester, Liverpool, Newcastle, Glasgow,
Belfast, Dublin, West Glamorgan, Southampton, Cardiff and Hartlepool. All
the informants are authentic speakers of the variety concerned and the
samples are overwhelmingly of genuine conversational language. This set of
recordings is one of the best sources presently available for samples of
accents of British English. Notes are supplied to accompany the section of
the cassette recording which demonstrates the vowels and consonants of the
International Phonetic Association's alphabet. A section is included
with over 350 questions on phonetics, covering the material dealt with in
the textbook The Phonetics of English and Dutch. These will be excellent as
a means of testing knowledge, and also for exam preparation.
