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: One Mind, Two Languages
Subtitle: Bilingual Language Processing
Edited By: Janet Nicol
URL: http://www.blackwellpub.com/asp/book.asp?ref=0631220984
Series Title: Explaining Linguistics
Description:

One Mind, Two Languages surveys current research in language processing - from both linguistic and psycholinguistic perspectives - in individuals who speak more than one language. Such research bears on a broad range of questions relating to whether language can shape thought and what it means to be proficient in a language, as well as formal theories of linguistics and language processing.


The volume focuses on how the multi-language user represents and processes linguistic information. Chapters include an overview of methodological issues in bilingual research, new empirical research, and extensive summaries of relevant past work.

This is an invaluable resource for anyone interested in state-of-the-art research on the status of language processing in bilinguals.
