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."

Journal of Politeness Research: Language, Behaviour, Culture

Call Deadline: 01-Aug-2014

Call Information:
Call for Papers: 10th Year Anniversary Issue of the Journal of Politeness Research

The Journal of Politeness Research will be publishing a special anniversary issue to celebrate the 10th anniversary of the journal.

From its conception to its growth over the past ten years, the Journal of Politeness Research has aimed to bring together a multidisciplinary synergy of approaches on politeness as a complex linguistic and non-linguistic phenomenon. In bringing together different research strands that focus on politeness, and by publishing on lesser-studied cultures and languages in relation to politeness, the journal has played a pivotal role in establishing politeness research worldwide, and has served as a catalyst for innovation. For this special issue, the editors invite papers that reflect the diversity and recent developments in the field of politeness research.

The editorial team has consciously chosen not to restrict the subject areas for the special anniversary issue, but seeks to include work with a wide array of approaches to politeness that reflect the diversity and recent developments in the field of Politeness research.
