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 in Time: The Rhythm and Tempo of Spoken Interaction
Written By: Peter Auer
Frank Müller
Elizabeth Couper-Kuhlen
Description:

(Oxford Studies in Sociolinguistics) The authors here promote the
reintroduction of temporality into the description and analysis of spoken
interaction. They argue that spoken words are, in fact, temporal objects
and that unless linguists consider how they are delivered within the
context of time, they will not capture the full meaning of situated
language use. Their approach is rigorously empirical, with analyses of
English, German, and Italian rhythm, all grounded in sequences of actual
talk-in-interaction.
