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: Electronic Discourse in Language Learning and Language Teaching
Edited By: Lee B. Abraham
Lawrence Williams
URL: http://www.benjamins.com/cgi-bin/t_bookview.cgi?bookid=LL%26LT%2025
Series Title: Language Learning & Language Teaching 25
Description:

New technologies are constantly transforming traditional notions of
language use and literacy in online communication environments. While
previous research has provided a foundation for understanding the use of
new technologies in instructed second language environments, few studies
have investigated new literacies and electronic discourse beyond the
classroom setting. This volume seeks to address this gap by providing
corpus-based and empirical studies of electronic discourse analyzing social
and linguistic variation as well as communicative practices in chat,
discussion forums, blogs, and podcasts. Several chapters also examine the
assessment and integration of new literacies. This volume will serve as a
valuable resource for researchers, teachers, and students interested in
exploring electronic discourse and new literacies in language learning and
teaching.
