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."

Terminology in Everyday Life contains a selection of fresh and
interesting articles by prominent scholars and practitioners in the field
of terminology based on papers presented at an international terminology
congress on the impact of terminology on everyday life. The volume brings
together theory and practice of terminology and deals with such issues as
the growing influence of European English on terminology, terminology on
demand, setting up a national terminological infrastructure, the relevance
of frames and contextual information for terminology, and standardisation
through automated term extraction and editing tools. The book wants to
demonstrate that terminology is of everyday importance and is of interest
to everyone interested in the theory and practice of terminology, from
terminologists to computer specialists to lecturers and students.
