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: First Language Use in Second and Foreign Language Learning
Edited By: Miles Turnbull
Jennifer Dailey-O'Cain
URL: http://www.multilingual-matters.com/display.asp?isb=9781847691958
Series Title: Second Language Acquisition
Description:

This book focuses on the use of the first language in communicative or
immersion-type classrooms. Through the intersection of theory, practice,
curriculum and policy, the volume calls for a reconceptualization of
code-switching as something that both proficient and aspiring bilinguals do
naturally, and as a practice that is inherently linked with bilingual
code-switching.
