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: Die Rhetorik des Spitzensports [The Rhetoric of Top-Class Sport]
Written By: Johannes Heil
URL: http://www.degruyter.com/view/product/180513?format=G
Series Title: De Gruyter Rhetorik-Forschungen 20
Description:

It is only through communication that physical activity becomes sport. Sport as
a happening becomes a meaningful event through the interplay of dramaturgical
rules and rhetorical patterns. Working from this point of departure, this study
reveals how the sports report serves to realize the possibilities of sport. The
sports report tells the stories which are actually the reason why the sport exists
at all. Particularly in top-class sports communicated by mass media, this leads
to illuminating, amusing or moving dramas in the arena of physical and mental
achievement.
