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: English Grammar
Subtitle: A resource book for students
Written By: Roger Berry
URL: http://www.routledge.com/books/details/9780415561099/
Series Title: Routledge English Language Introductions
Description:

Routledge English Language Introductions cover core areas of language study
and are one-stop resources for students.

Assuming no prior knowledge, books in the series offer an accessible
overview of the subject, with activities, study questions, sample analyses,
commentaries and key readings - all in the same volume. The innovative and
flexible 'two-dimensional' structure is built around four sections -
introduction, development, exploration and extension - which offer
self-contained stages for study. Each topic can also be read across these
sections, enabling the reader to build gradually on the knowledge gained.

'English Grammar':

-presents the basic concepts and key terms of English grammar in a clear
and systematic way

-encourages readers to evaluate critically the knowledge they already have,
particularly in areas that are problematic for them as learners, and to
build up and trust their own intuitions about the language

-uses a range of international authentic texts to illustrate concepts and
theories, from sources such as newspapers, novels and academic texts
discussing English grammar

-is accompanied by a companion website featuring audio files of authentic
spoken English, and further activities.

Written by an experienced teacher and researcher, this accessible textbook
is an essential resource for all students of English language and linguistics.
