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: Corpus Linguistics and Variation in English
Subtitle: Focus on Non-Native Englishes
Edited By: Magnus Huber
Joybrato Mukherjee
URL: http://www.helsinki.fi/varieng/journal/volumes/13/
Series Title: Studies in Variation, Contacts and Change in English 13
Description:

A selection of the papers at the 31st annual conference of the International Computer Archive of Modern and Medieval English (ICAME), this volume includes 13 papers that represent the strong interest at ICAME 31 in Outer Circle varieties of English and learner Englishes. The papers are theoretical as well as descriptive in orientation and provide a significant contribution to corpus linguistics and research into non-native Englishes from a variationist perspective. The papers address three main themes: (1) The first six papers in the volume investigate different varieties of English, from English as a Native Language, over English as a Second Language to English as an International Language. (2) The following four contributions examine English as a Foreign Language in the workspace and the learning environment. (3) The last three articles focus on translation corpora. Contributions by: * Georg Maier * Andrea Sand * Tobias Bernaisch * Stephanie Hackert, Dagmar Deuber, Carolin Biewer & Michaela Hilbert * Gerold Schneider & Lena Zipp * Ruth Osimk-Teasdale * Federico Gaspari * Nikoletta Rapti * Stefanie Dose * Sandra Go╠łtz * Anne-Line Graedler * Signe Oksefjell Ebeling * Thomas Egan
