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."

discrimination based on accent functions to support and perpetuate social
structures and unequal power relations.

-discussion questions, further reading, and suggested classroom exercises,
-updated examples from the classroom, the judicial system, the media, and
corporate culture
-a discussion of the long-term implications of the Ebonics debate

attitudes and discrimination towards language.
