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: New Perspectives on Language and Education
Description:

This book, addressed to experienced and novice language educators, provides
an up-to-date overview of sociolinguistics, reflecting changes in the global
situation and the continuing evolution of the field and its relevance to language
education around the world. Topics covered include nationalism and popular
culture, style and identity, creole languages, critical language awareness, gender
and ethnicity, multimodal literacies, classroom discourse, and ideologies and
power. Whether considering the role of English as an international language or
innovative initiatives in Indigenous language revitalization, in every context of
the world sociolinguistic perspectives highlight the fluid and flexible use of
language in communities and classrooms, and the importance of teacher
practices that open up spaces of awareness and acceptance of --and access to-
-the widest possible communicative repertoire for students.
