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: Ethnic Styles of Speaking in European Metropolitan Areas
Edited By: Friederike Kern
Margret Selting
URL: http://benjamins.com/catalog/silv.8
Series Title: Studies in Language Variation 8
Description:

In recent years, ethnic ways of speaking by young people with migrant
background have become an important research object in sociolinguistics; work
on these ways of speaking has been prospering in many European countries.
This work is continued in the present volume, with the aim of bringing together
various research designs which explore the phenomenon from different
perspectives: correlational methodology of sociolinguistic research,
conversation analytical and interactional linguistic methodology, and an
ethnographic perspective on language use and the construction of social
identities and social relations. The aim of the volume is to explore the scope of
these different methodologies and to provide a basis for the discussion and
evaluation of the theories of language variation associated with them. All papers
focus on the description of the linguistic characteristics that constitute the non-
standard structures of ethnic styles of speaking, and look into their various
functions in discourse.
