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: New Adventures in Language and Interaction
Edited By: Jürgen K Streeck
URL: http://www.benjamins.com/cgi-bin/t_bookview.cgi?bookid=P%26bns%20196
Series Title: Pragmatics & Beyond New Series 196
Description:

In this book sixteen international scholars of language and social
interaction describe their distinct frameworks of analysis. Taking
conversation analysis and interactional sociolinguistics as their points of
departure and investigating ordinary conversation as well as institutions
such as health care, therapy, and city council meetings, they often
incorporate gesture, prosody, and the listener's behavior in the analysis
of talk. While some approaches are grounded in a critique of the major
schools of interaction analysis, others integrate the interactionist
perspective with ideas from fields such as systemic-functional linguistics,
distributed cognition, and the sociology of knowledge. Each chapter
combines a statement of the terms and methods of analysis with an
exemplary
analysis of a moment of interaction. New Adventures in Language and
Interaction
gives an excellent overview of the novelty and diversity of
interaction-focused perspectives on language and of the heterogeneity of
approaches that have evolved from the pioneering work of Sacks and
Schegloff, Gumperz, and their co-workers.
