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."

Written By: R. E. Batchelor
Malcolm Offord
Description:

This is a new, thoroughly revised edition of the acclaimed Using French. It
provides guidance for those who have already acquired the basics of French
and wish to extend their knowledge of the language. Unlike conventional
grammars, it gives special attention to those areas of the vocabulary and
grammatical usage of contemporary French that cause most difficulty to
English-speakers, and incorporates the concept of register differences
throughout. Clearly laid out and easy to consult, it will prove invaluable
to all who wish to improve their fluency and confidence in French.
