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 Multilingual Subject
Written By: Claire Kramsch
URL: http://ukcatalogue.oup.com/product/9780194424783.do
Description:

By drawing on multiple examples of real-world language learning situations, this
book explores the subjective aspects of the language learning experience. The
author encourages readers to consider language learning from new, diverse, and
unique perspectives. The book analyses data from a variety of sources,
including language memoirs, online data from language learners in chat rooms,
and text messaging exchanges. In the analysis of this data, the book looks at
the relationship between symbolic form and the development of a multilingual
subjectivity; links with memory, emotion, and the imagination; and the
implications for language teaching pedagogy.
