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: Perspectives in Politics and Discourse
Edited By: Urszula Okulska

URL: http://www.benjamins.com/cgi-bin/t_bookview.cgi?bookid=DAPSAC%2036
Series Title: Discourse Approaches to Politics, Society and Culture 36
Description:

The volume explores the vast and heterogeneous territory of Political
Linguistics, structuring and developing its concepts, themes and
methodologies into combined and coherent Analysis of Political Discourse
(APD). Dealing with an extensive and representative variety of topics and
domains – political rhetoric, mediatized communication, ideology, politics
of language choice, etc. – it offers uniquely systematic, theoretically
grounded insights in how language is used to perform
power-enforcing/imbuing practices in social interaction, and how it is
deployed for communicating decisions concerning language itself. The twenty
chapters in the volume, written by specialists in political linguistics,
(critical) discourse analysis, pragmatics, sociolinguistics, and social
psychology, address the diversity of political discourse to propose novel
perspectives from which common analytic procedures can be drawn and
followed. The volume is thus an essential resource for anyone looking for a
coherent research agenda in explorations of political discourse as a point
of reference for their own academic activities, both scholarly and didactic.
