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: Research in Second Language Processing and Parsing
Edited By: Bill VanPatten

Series Title: Language Acquisition and Language Disorders 53
Description:

This volume is the first dedicated to the growing field of theory and
research on second language processing and parsing. The fourteen papers in
this volume offer cutting-edge research using a number of different
languages (e.g., Arabic, Spanish, Japanese, French, German, English) and
structures (e.g., relative clauses, wh-gaps, gender, number) to examine
various issues in second language processing: first language influence,
whether or not non-natives can achieve native-like processing, the roles of
context and prosody, the effects of working memory, and others. The
researchers include both established scholars and newer voices, all
offering important insights into the factors that affect processing and
parsing in a second language.
