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."

Series Title: Studies in Corpus Linguistics 52
Description:

These specially-commissioned studies cover corpus-informed approaches to
researching, teaching and learning English for Specific Purposes (ESP). The
corpora used range from very large published corpora to small tailor-made
collections of written and spoken text, as well as parallel and contrastive
corpora, in both the hard and softer sciences. Designed to tackle the
problems faced by a variety of first- and second-language ESP users
(specialised translators, undergraduates, junior and experienced researchers,
and language trainers), the breadth of approaches enables treatment of
issues central to ESP and corpus research, from corpus compilation and
analysis to new applications and data-driven learning. The first full-length
book on applied corpus use in France, "Corpus-Informed Research and
Learning in ESP" will be of interest not only to those working in the French
context, but to a wide variety of language professionals – teachers,
researchers or course designers – in many countries looking at ESP from
different linguistic, cultural and educational perspectives.
