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: The Multiliteracies Classroom
Written By: Kathy A. Mills
URL: http://www.multilingual-matters.com/display.asp?isb=9781847693181
Series Title: New Perspectives on Language and Education
Description:

The multiliteracies approach to literacy education has become established as an
accessible and effective paradigm for classroom practice in the 21st century.
The Multiliteracies Classroom enlivens this theory with its vivid description of
events in a real classroom. Teachers will identify with the lively transcripts of
classroom interactions, and be inspired to widen students’ access to new
literacy practices in an increasingly digital and globalised world. The possibilities
and constraints that can be encountered when implementing multiliteracies are
explored in detail. Educators know from experience that students begin their
classroom journey with entirely unequal opportunities for literacy success. The
Multiliteracies Classroom does not ignore this reality, highlighting the influence
of society’s patterns of power on literacy learning in the digital age. Its key
themes provide a blueprint for the future of literacy research and practice.
