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 in Written Language and Literacy 12
Description:

This book brings together the work of scholars from around the world - UK,
Pakistan, US, South Africa, Hungary, Korea, Mexico - to illustrate and
celebrate the many ways in which Roz Ivanič has advanced the academic
study of writing. Focusing on writing in different formal contexts of
education, from primary through to further and higher education in a range
of national contexts, the twenty one original contributions in the book
critically engage with theoretical and empirical issues raised in
Ivanič's influential body of work. In their exploration of writers'
struggles with the demands of dominant literacy the authors significantly
extend understandings of writing practices in formal institutions.
Organized around three themes central to Ivanič's work - creativity
and identity; pedagogy; and research methodologies - the twelve chapters
and nine personal and scholarly reflections reveal the powerful ways in
which Ivanič's work has influenced thinking in the field of writing
and continues to open up avenues for future questioning and research.
