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."

Description:

The first publication from The Framework & Language Portfolio Special Interest
Group (FLP SIG), "Can do statements in language education in Japan and
beyond", includes 23 papers from writers primarily in Japan but also from
influential contributors based in Europe (Mike Byram, Anthony Green, David
Little). One aim of this publication is to give specific ideas and resources for
educators to bring into classrooms. As a result many of the papers in this
volume take on an action research focus. Several other papers seek to explain
the development and issues regarding use of the CEFR, the ELP and can do
statements. All papers feature a Japanese and English abstract. The majority of
the papers are written in English. However, in keeping with the multilingual focus
of the CEFR, two papers are written in Japanese, and three other writers in their
first language of German.
