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."

Subtitle: Theory and Practice
Written By: Lia Litosseliti
URL: http://www.hoddereducation.co.uk/Title/0340809590/Gender_and_Language_Theory_and_Practice.htm
Description:

Gender & Language offers a broad and accessible introduction to the study
of gender and language for those new to the subject. The book introduces
both theoretical and applied perspectives, identifying and explaining the
relevant frameworks and drawing on a range of activities/examples of how
gender is constructed in discourse.

The book is divided into 3 parts. Part I covers the historical background
to the study of gender and language, moving on through past theoretical
approaches to a discussion of current debates in the field, with a
particular emphasis on the role of discourse analysis. In part II, gender
is examined in context with chapters focussing on gender and language in
education, the mass media, and the workplace. Finally, Part III briefly
looks at key principles and approaches to gender and language research and
includes activities, study questions, and resources for teachers in the field.

Rich with examples and investigative activities drawn from current debates
and events, this book is designed to be appealing and informative and will
capture the imaginations of readers from a range of backgrounds and
disciplines.
