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."

Description:

"Hiyaku: An Intermediate Japanese Course" provides a progressive
intermediate course in Japanese, incorporating modern teaching methods and
practicing all four language skills. Hiyaku provides content-based instruction,
with authentic and semi-authentic dialogues and readings, all carefully
selected to instruct and inspire students as they learn Japanese.

Key features of the textbook include:

-highly structured chapters, beginning with warm-up exercises followed by
focused practice of each of the four skills

-gradual introduction to increasingly authentic materials

-content taken from original Japanese sources such as books, TV programs,
magazines, newspapers and websites

-extensive audio material provided as free MP3 files on a companion website

-instructor’s materials, including PowerPoint files provided through the
companion website: http://www.routledge.com/cw/eguchi/

Hiyaku does not simply teach language and basic cultural points: it also
helps students gain a holistic understanding of Japanese society and history,
and provides the necessary foundation for the advanced study of Japan and
its language.
