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: Kommunikationsreihen aus Gespr├Ąchen und Textkommunikaten [Communication Series from Conversations and Text Communication]
Subtitle: Zur Kommunikation in und zwischen Gesellschaften
Written By: Sigurd Wichter
URL: http://www.degruyter.com/cont/fb/var/detailEn.cfm?id=IS-9783110234091-1
Series Title: De Gruyter Reihe Germanistische Linguistik 294
Description:

The theory of communication series is suggested as an alternative to discourse
linguistics because it focuses not only on mass communications with reference
to a thematic context, but examines every social communication including
interpersonal communication between two persons or within a small group. Each
element of communication is subject to three areas of level: (1) speech act and
speech act sequences; (2) communication (conversations, text-based
communication); (3) series as purpose-constituted consequences of
communication. Series can be recursively embedded, extending as far as
society-related and international series. Series are diachronic quantities with
evolutionary levels.
