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: Latino Language and Literacy in Ethnolinguistic Chicago
Edited By: Marcia Farr
Description:

This volume--along with its companion "Ethnolinguistic Chicago: Language
and Literacy in the City's Neighborhoods"--fills an important gap in
research on Chicago, one of the most linguistically diverse cities in the
United States and home to one of the largest and most diverse Latino
communities, and more generally, on language use in globalized metropolitan
areas. The focus is on the related issues of language and ethnicity.
