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: Multimodality, Cognition, and Experimental Literature
Written By: Alison Gibbons
URL: http://www.routledge.com/books/details/9780415873611/
Series Title: Routledge Studies in Multimodality
Description:

Since the turn of the millennium, there has seen an increase in the inclusion of
typography, graphics and illustration in fiction. This book engages with visual
and multimodal devices in twenty-first century literature, exploring canonical
authors like Mark Z. Danielewski and Jonathan Safran Foer alongside
experimental fringe writers such as Steve Tomasula, to uncover an embodied
textual aesthetics in the information age. Bringing together multimodality and
cognition in an innovative study of how readers engage with challenging
literature, this book makes a significant contribution to the debates surrounding
multimodal design and multimodal reading. Drawing on cognitive linguistics,
cognitive psychology, neuroscience, semiotics, visual perception, visual
communication, and multimodal analysis, Gibbons provides a sophisticated set
of critical tools for analysing the cognitive impact of multimodal literature.
