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 Translation Studies
Edited By: Floriana Popescu
Description:

Please Note: This is a new edition of a previously announced text,

Based on a great deal of recent research performed by academics
investigating works translated from/into English, this book provides fresh
perspectives to the field of translation studies.

It combines theoretical and practical aspects of the translation process
with a comprehensive set of thoroughly commented examples.

Perspectives in Translation Studies is a structurally complex volume which:

*Is especially designed to cover insights into a wide range of British and
American literary products (novels, short stories and poetry)
*Comparatively examines patterns of language use in English and other
languages, referring both to pairs of verbs and phraseological
constructions (collocations and idioms, pre-fabricated or ready-made
phrases and proverbs)
*Explores some of the globalization challenges in the translation of
national films into English

It is ideal for every person with an interest not only in the art or the
making of a translation but also in the result of the translation process.
