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."

Description:

This book is the first to propose an integrated approach to the study of
bilingual education in minority and majority settings. Contributions from
well-known scholars working in eight different countries in Europe and the
Americas show that it is possible to bridge the gap between prestigious

towards the construction of multilingual spaces.
