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: Women, Language and Grammar in Italy, 1500-1900
Written By: Helena Sanson
URL: http://ukcatalogue.oup.com/product/9780197264836.do
Series Title: British Academy Postdoctoral Fellowship Monographs
Description:

In the sixteenth century Italian was a literary language not accessible to the
less educated, among them women, who would instead speak a local dialect.
Little attention has been paid to women's linguistic education, but this study
shows the vital role they played in developing Italian as a true mother tongue.
