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."

This volume offers a representative selection of Sally McConnell-Ginet's
publications on language, gender and sexuality, which circle around the
following themes: language users are actively engaged in making meanings,
both as speakers and listeners; languages and socio-political institutions
constrain, but do not determine, communicative possibilities; attention to
language deepens understanding of gender and sexuality, including
connections to ethnicity, class, race, and other dimensions of social
identity and inequality.

the field of language and gender.

sexuality.
