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: English Phonetics and Phonology
Subtitle: A Practical Course
Written By: Peter J Roach
URL: http://us.cambridge.org/titles/catalogue.asp?isbn=0521797985
Description:

This is a complete basic course in English phonetics and phonology. Since its publication it has established itself as the most practical and comprehensive text in the field. It is used by both native and non-native speakers, who may be training to teach English or studying the language at an advanced level. The new edition takes into account recent developments on the teaching of phonology, and a number of improvements have been made in response to feedback from users world wide. English Phonetics and Phonology bridges the gap between simple pronunciation handbooks and technical phonetics and phonology textbooks. The chapters are cross-referenced to the recordings which consist of practical exercises on two cassettes or CDs. At the end of each chapter there are notes giving information on further reading, discussion of difficult issues and, where appropriate, suggestions for teachers.
