This book "challenges the assumption that there is only one 'legitimate' and homogenous form of English or of any other language" and "supports the view of different/alternative histories of the English language and will appeal to readers who are skeptical of 'standard' language ideology."

For scholars, paleo-Sardinian still presents many unanswered questions. This study illuminates for the first time the linguistic identity of the original inhabitants of the island by means of a systematic and structured analysis of field names in the archaic central area of Sardinia. Through a thorough comparison of the identified place name structures with respective lexicon entries of paleo-Basque and paleo-Iberian, the author can substantiate his hypothesis of an immigration from the ancient Iberian peninsula to Sardinia dating back to the Mesolithic period and the entire Neolithic period.
