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: Reticence and Anxiety in Oral English Lessons
Written By: Meihua Liu

Description:

This study explores the field of EFL (English as a foreign language)
classroom learning within a formal learning institution. Drawing on
theories and methods from various disciplines, this book explores the
question which has been frustrating language teachers: why do so many
students remain reticent and anxious in language class?
Based on a large-scale survey and a more focused case study, the book
argues persuasively that reticence and anxiety in formal EFL classrooms are
important factors in determining the outcome of language learning. By means
of a triangulated research method, this book examines various aspects of
reticence and anxiety in EFL classroom learning situations. The author
analyses causes and consequences, differences in terms of gender and
proficiency level, and coping strategies.
