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: Languages for Intercultural Communication and Education
Description:

This book is a theoretical and practical discussion of intercultural
communication and interaction and is aimed at academic courses as well as
professional development programmes. It focuses, from a critical perspective,
on the intercultural dynamics established between the members of multicultural
groups/teams in various types of work environments. Selected academics and
other experts on intercultural communication and interaction, representing
different approaches and professional experience, joined, collaborated and
contributed to the fulfilment of a three-year project where they developed a
model in eight axes: - Intercultural Responsibility, Emotional Management,
Intercultural Interaction, Communicative Interaction, Ethnography, Biography,
Diversity Management and Working in Multicultural Teams. Each chapter
provides an interdisciplinary account of its topic as well as an activity which
aims to illustrate the ideas proposed.
