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."


Book Information

   

Title: Laughter in Interaction
Written By: Phillip J. Glenn
URL: http://www.cup.org/linguistics
Series Title: Studies in Interactional Sociolinguistics 18
Description:

Bringing together twenty-five years of research on the sequential
organization of laughter in everyday talk, Phillip Glenn analyzes
recordings and transcripts to indicate the finely-detailed coordination of
human laughter. He demonstrates that its occurrence, relative to talk and
other activities, reveals much about its emergent meaning and effects. The
book considers laughter's significant role in how people display, respond
to, and revise identities and relationships.
