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."

BELT+ is a peer-reviewed, freely distributed electronic publication with the mission of showcasing the quality research being carried out around the world on the teaching and learning processes involved in English and Portuguese as additional languages, from a variety of theoretical and methodological perspectives. To this end, we will be dedicating one issue per year to studies aimed at English as an Additional Language and the second issue of the year to studies aimed at Portuguese as an Additional Language. Our main goal is to promote a broader debate on issues related to both themes, focusing on different levels and contexts that touch upon the Brazilian reality. Published every semester, the journal welcomes original articles, book reviews, interviews and classroom activities.

BELT+ accepts papers in Portuguese and English.
