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: Educational Linguistics in Practice
Subtitle: Applying the Local Globally and the Global Locally
Edited By: Francis M. Hult
Kendall A. King
URL: http://www.multilingual-matters.com/display.asp?isb=9781847693525
Series Title: Bilingual Education and Bilingualism
Description:

This volume provides a state-of-the-art snapshot of language and education
research and demonstrates ways in which local and global processes are
intertwined with language learning, use, and policies. Reflecting but also
expanding on Nancy Hornberger’s ground-breaking contributions to
educational linguistics, this book brings together leading international
scholars. Chapters present new research and cutting-edge syntheses
addressing current theoretical and methodological issues in researching
equity, access, and multilingual education. Organized around three central
themes --- bilingual education and bilingualism, the continua of
biliteracy, and policy and planning for linguistic diversity in education
--- the volume reflects the holistic and dynamic perspective on language
(in) education that is the hallmark of educational linguistics as a field.
