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."

Query:   I am a PhD pre-candidate doing a study on the Afrikaans and English of
Afrikaans native speakers in expatriate communities. I will be conducting a
pilot study over the next four weeks with the Afrikaans speaking community
in Greater London. In additional to the subject pools with which I have
already made contact, I am looking for additional participants.
Participants will fill-out a survey, have a sociolinguistic interview, and
will read word lists. If you are in the Greater London area and either, (1)
are an Afrikaans-native speaker and would like to take part in this study,
or (2) have contact with or knowledge of the Afrikaans speaking community
in Greater London, I would appreciate hearing from you. As of right now, I
have 7 confirmed participants, but would like to raise this number to at
least 15. Thus, any additional participants I could contact through this
forum, or advice on viable means of recruitment for Afrikaans-speakers in
London is solicited.
