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: Translation Studies
Edited By: Mona Baker
URL: http://www.routledge.com/9780415344227
Series Title: Critical Concepts in Linguistics
Description:

Translation Studies has emerged as a thriving interdisciplinary and
international area of scholarship. Its rapid growth has been accompanied by
diverse forms of translation research and commentary, most falling within,
or crossing, traditional academic disciplines such as linguistics, literary
criticism, philosophy, anthropology, and, more recently, cultural studies.

This new four-volume collection from Routledge brings together foundational
and more recent, cutting-edge contributions to the field. The collection is
both retrospective and forward-looking, making sense of the past as well as
providing pointers towards the future.

Fully indexed and with a comprehensive introduction, Translation Studies is
an essential work of reference for use by both scholar and student as a
vital one-stop research resource.
