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: Teaching Reading to Adult Second Language Learners
Subtitle: Theoretical Foundations, Pedagogical Applications, and Current Issues
Written By: Meena Singhal
URL: http://www.readingmatrix.com/book/index.html
Description:

This book is designed to serve as a teacher resource book for pre- and
in-service reading and ESL teachers. It can also serve as a university
textbook for courses on L2 reading methods, reading instruction, or in
teacher preparation courses which focus on reading. This text provides an
overview of various theoretical frameworks as they apply to reading, the
relevant areas of research in the areas of second language and foreign
language reading, and the connection of such theories to the teaching and
learning of reading. The text aims to provide reading teachers and language
instructors with an understanding of the reading process, L2/FL readers,
and the ways in which to build reading skills, particularly academic
reading skills and comprehension skills. The opening chapters provide
teachers and students in reading and language methodology classes with a
broad theoretical basis for developing effective classroom methods in the
reading class. The remaining chapters provide practical information
relating to effective teaching methods, reading assessment, and design and
planning of a reading course. The text focuses on both theory and practice
leading to a holistic understanding of second language reading and L2/FL
readers.
