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: The Routledge Handbook of Multimodal Analysis
Edited By: Carey Jewitt
URL: http://www.routledge.com/9780415434379
Description:

Multimodality is an innovative approach to representation, communication
and interaction which looks beyond language to investigate the multitude of
ways we communicate: through images, sound and music to gestures, body
posture and the use of space.

The Routledge Handbook of Multimodal Analysis is the first comprehensive
‘research tool kit’ for multimodal analysis, with 22 chapters written by
leading figures in the field on a wide range of theoretical and
methodological issues. It clarifies terms and concepts, synthesizes the key
literature with in-depth exploration and illustrative analysis, and tackles
challenging methodological issues.

The Handbook includes chapters on key factors for Multimodality such as
technology, culture, notions of identity and macro issues such as literacy
policy. The handbook takes a broad look at multimodality and engages with
how a variety of other theoretical approaches have looked at multimodal
communication and representation, including visual studies, anthropology,
conversation analysis, socio-cultural theory, socio-linguistics and new
literacy studies.

Detailed multimodal analysis case studies are also included, along with an
extensive glossary of key terms, to support those new to multimodality and
allow those already engaged in multimodal research to explore the
fundamentals further.

The Routledge Handbook of Multimodal Analysis is essential reading for
undergraduate and postgraduate students as well as researchers involved in
the study of multimodal communication.
