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: Aspects of Multilingual Aphasia
Edited By: Martin R. Gitterman
Mira Goral
Loraine K. Obler

Series Title: Communications Disorders Across Languages
Description:

This volume provides a broad overview of current work in aphasia in individuals
who speak more than one language. With contributions from many of the leading
researchers in the field, the material included, both experimental work and
theoretical overviews, should prove useful to both researchers and clinicians.
The book should also appeal to a broader audience, including all who have an
interest in the study of language disorders in an increasingly
multicultural/multilingual world (e.g. students of speech-language pathology and
linguistics). The areas of multilingual aphasia addressed in this collection
include assessment and treatment, language phenomena (e.g. code-switching),
particular language pairs (including a bidialectal study), and the role of cultural
context.
