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: Language Acquisition across Linguistic and Cognitive Systems
Edited By: Michèle Kail

URL: http://www.benjamins.com/cgi-bin/t_bookview.cgi?bookid=LALD%2052
Series Title: Language Acquisition and Language Disorders 52
Description:

How and why do all children learn language? Why do some have difficulties
while others are early language learners? What are the consequences of
early bilingualism? Is it possible to reach native-like competence in a
foreign language? Although we still cannot fully answer these questions,
research during the last two decades has begun to solve some pieces of the
puzzle. This book proposes an interdisciplinary collection of writings from
some of the best specialists across several fields in cognitive science,
offering a wide sample of recent advances in the study of first language
acquisition, bilingualism, second language acquisition, and disorders of
oral language. It is addressed to all researchers and students interested
in language acquisition, as well as to teachers, clinicians and parents,
who will find therein many new findings and varied methodological
approaches, as well as challenging questions that are still debated and in
need of further research.
