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: New Trends in Crosslinguistic Influence and Multilingualism Research
Edited By: Gessica De Angelis
Jean-Marc Adrien Dewaele
URL: http://www.multilingual-matters.com/display.asp?isb=9781847694416
Series Title: Second Language Acquisition
Description:

This book presents the latest developments in crosslinguistic influence (CLI)
and multilingualism research. The contributors, both veteran researchers and
relative newcomers to the field, situate their research in current debates in
terms of theory and data analysis and they present it in an accessible way. The
chapters investigate how and when native and non-native language knowledge
is used in language production. They focus on lexis, syntax, tense-aspect,
phonology of multilingual production and link it to a range of concepts such as
redundancy, affordances, metalinguistic awareness and L2 status. The
empirical data have been collected from participants with a wide combination of
languages: besides English, German, French and Spanish, there is Finnish,
Swedish, Polish, Chinese and Catalan.
