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: Rules, Patterns and Words
Subtitle: Grammar and Lexis in English Language Teaching
Written By: Dave Willis
URL: http://us.cambridge.org/titles/catalogue.asp?isbn=0521829240
Series Title: Cambridge Language Teaching Library
Description:

Grammar is central to language pedagogy and teachers need a clear description of what constitutes grammar and how it can best be taught in the English language classroom. This book illustrates a new way of describing the grammar of spoken and written English. In an accessible style, the author demonstrates how lexical phrases, frames and patterns provide a link between grammar and vocabulary. He also discusses how the different aspects of the language require different learning processes and different teaching techniques. These processes and techniques are contextualised within a task-based approach to teaching and learning. Numerous interactive tasks are provided to guide readers and over forty examples of teaching exercises are included to illustrate techniques which can be applied in the classroom immediately.
