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."


Book Information

   

Title: Pragmatics
Written By: Yan Huang
URL: http://www.oup.co.uk/isbn/0-19-924368-9
Series Title: Oxford Textbooks in Linguistics
Description:

This introduction to pragmatics provides an authoritative and comprehensive
account of its central topics and a guide to the latest research. After
describing the subject's scope and history, it examines conversational and
conventional implicature, presupposition, speech act theory, and deixis. It
then explores the interfaces between pragmatics and other core areas of
inquiry, including cognition (focussing on relevance theory), semantics,
and syntax. Professor Huang's lively account contains exercises with
suggested solutions, a glossary, and guides to further reading. This is the
ideal textbook for students of linguistics. It is also a valuable resource
for scholars in related fields.
