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: Language, Discourse and Social Psychology
Edited By: Ann Weatherall
Bernadette Watson
Cindy Gallois
URL: http://www.palgrave.com/newsearch/Catalogue.aspx?is=1403995958
Series Title: Palgrave Advances
Description:

Language and communication are central features of social behaviour. So, it
is somewhat surprising that the social psychological study of language,
communication and discourse has a relatively short history. In this book a
leading group of language, discourse and social psychology scholars will
overview the history, theories and methods of the field. However, the main
focus is on current developments in the social psychology of language and
discourse, showcasing cutting edge empirical work.
