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: Understanding English Grammar
Subtitle: A Linguistic Approach - Second Edition
Written By: Ronald Wardhaugh
Description:

*NEW EDITION*
Understanding English Grammar presents the essentials of English structure comprehensibly to students who have had little or no opportunity to study the language, and does so within a framework derived from modern linguistic theory. Students, however, require no previous knowledge of linguistics. Through use of this book, students will gain an understanding of what is involved in the scholarly study of language and, while doing so, acquire a considerable knowledge of English grammar.
