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: Phraseology in Foreign Language Learning and Teaching
Edited By: Fanny Meunier
Sylviane Granger
URL: http://www.benjamins.com/cgi-bin/t_bookview.cgi?bookid=Z%20138
Description:

This book addresses the key role of phraseology in second language
acquisition and instruction. It is divided into three main sections:
Extracting and Describing Phraseological Units investigates the role
played by native and learner corpora in the extraction and description of
multiword units, two initial and crucial steps in informing language
pedagogy; Learning Phraseological Units deals with the learning
aspect, an oft-neglected yet essential dimension of phraseology in
second/foreign language pedagogy, this section also addresses issues in new
literacies; and Recording and Exploiting Phraseological Units
focuses on pedagogical tools, notably monolingual and bilingual
dictionaries and textbooks. This stimulating collection presents cutting
edge research in the field and identifies major avenues for future
theoretical and applied work. It is of particular relevance to researchers
and teachers interested in the patterned nature of language.
