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: Public Service Interpreting
Subtitle: The First Steps
Written By: Ann Corsellis
URL: http://www.palgrave.com/products/title.aspx?PID=269252
Series Title: Palgrave Textbooks in Translating and Interpreting
Description:

The increasing movement of people between countries in the modern world
requires that interpreters and translators take their place, shoulder to
shoulder, with members of other professions in the public services, such as
doctors, lawyers and social workers. Interpreters and translators, and
others with needed language skills, must therefore earn that place by
undertaking what is necessary to become a recognized profession with
nationally recognized training, assessments, qualifications and a code of
conduct. This book provides an accessible introduction to this emerging and
socially critical branch of the language professions. The focus is on the
development of a professional framework in which public service
professionals, including managers, can learn to work together with their
new colleagues to deliver a professional service to those seeking access
across linguistic and cultural barriers. The book brings together a wealth
of practical and professionally-oriented information which will benefit
trainees, trainers and practising professionals alike, as well as those who
manage and work with them.
