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."

International Journal of Computer-Assisted Language Learning and Teaching (IJCALLT)

Call Deadline: 31-Mar-2015

Call Information:
As the acquisition of language is closely associated with the ability to produce intelligible speech, computer-assisted technologies have been included in many language and/or literacy development programs offered by healthcare providers, covering a wide variety of disorders ranging from specific language and cognitive impairments, which obviously interfere with or delay the mastery of language skills, to blindness or visual impairment and mobility impairments, which limit the ability to move purposefully within a physical environment and which make regular participation of the programs at the hospital a challenge.
However, in contrast to a growing interest in the use of computer technologies in healthcare settings, to many healthcare providers, these technologies are still considered costly, though if implemented carefully, they could create a more flexible and responsive approach for the learners while undergoing medical procedures and treatments.

This special issue of the International Journal of Computer-Assisted Language Learning and Teaching seeks to expand awareness of the use of computer-assisted technologies in language and/or literacy development programs offered by healthcare providers. Submissions of papers focusing specifically on practical use of these technologies in language and/or literacy development programs designed for learners having or developing specific disorders, as well as their benefits and barriers when used in healthcare setting, are highly encouraged.

Recommended Topics

Topics to be discussed in this special issue include (but are not limited to) the following:
- Experimental practices
- Successful collaborative and/or interactive learning program
- Role of Instructor and Learner
- Open courseware and open online courses
- Designing, applying, or evaluating computer-based language learning
- The use of computer-assisted technologies with specific design tools
- Computer assisted technologies to support different needs or preferred learning styles
- Computer assisted technologies for specific language skill development
- Healthcare provider policy and other challenges related to the quality and accessibility of computer assisted language learning
- New forms of computer-aided design
- Transmedia practice and computer assisted composition
- Computer-assisted design and participatory simulation
- Computer-assisted technologies as facilitator for storytelling practices and techniques
- Computer-assisted technologies in language remediation program
- Computer-assisted intervention
- Computer-assisted technologies for critically ill patients
