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."


Book Information

   

Title: The Struggle for Legitimacy
Subtitle: Indigenized Englishes in Settler Schools
Written By: Andrea Sterzuk
URL: http://www.multilingual-matters.com/display.asp?isb=9781847695178
Series Title: Critical Language and Literacy Studies
Description:

This book examines the experiences of Indigenous students in settler schools
by using the example of a Canadian school as a window into the relationship
between colonial discourses, indigenized English language varieties, racialized
identities, and the biased educational practices of settler schools. The book
aims to develop awareness of the colonial past and its present-day influences
on settler schools; to take a close look at the effects of present-day settler
nationalism on constructions of race and language in settler schools; and to
explore what could be done differently to lessen present-day and future
educational inequity. The book will have great appeal to education students,
educators, teacher educators, and educational researchers in settler contexts.
