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: Language Engineering and Translation Consequences of Automation
Written By: Juan C Sager
Description:

The advent of automated alternatives to human translation has fundamentally affected the translator's profession, its products and the relationship between translators and their clients. At a time when information technology has become a regular tool of specialized translators in all aspects of their work, it is useful to place the activity of technical translation into its appropriate environment and to describe it in the broader context of communication today. This book re-examines the processes of translation as part of interlingual text production and analyzes the manner in which the new tools affect the product of translation. This book is of particular relevance in modern translator training courses. [Benjamins Translation Library 1]
