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."

Series Title: Studies on Language Acquisition [SOLA] 31
Description:

The present volume is a collection of papers on Contrastive Pragmatics,
involving research on interlanguage and cross-cultural perspectives with a
focus on second language acquisition contexts. The subdiscipline of
pragmatics is seen from a multilingual and multicultural perspective thus
contributing to an emerging field of study, i.e. intercultural pragmatics
which can be made fruitful to second language teaching/learning and
contrastive analysis. The book is an important contribution to general
linguistics, pragmatics, cross-cultural communication, second language
acquisition, as well as minority issues in multilingual settings.
