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: The Handbook of Spanish Second Language Acquisition
Edited By: Kimberly L. Geeslin
URL: http://www.wiley.com/WileyCDA/WileyTitle/productCd-0470674431.html
Series Title: Blackwell Handbooks in Linguistics
Description:

The Handbook of Spanish Second Language Acquisition brings together a comprehensive collection of newly-commissioned articles, compiled and written by experts in the field. It covers the most recent developments across a range of sub-fields relevant to the study of second language Spanish, each of which has seen ground-breaking empirical research in the past decade.

The Handbook's broad coverage includes current theoretical approaches -- generative, variationist, corpus, psycholinguistic -- alongside a variety of entries within such areas as the sound system, morphosyntax, individual and social factors, and instructed language learning. Chapters are organized into five sections spanning phonology, developing grammars, individual and social factors, and acquisition in the second language Spanish classroom. Providing a critical review of research and developments in the field, this Handbook offers the most complete and coherent overview on the subject currently available.
