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: Language Education Today
Subtitle: Between Theory and Practice
Edited By: Georgeta Raţă
Description:

Language Education Today: between Theory and Practice is a collection of
essays that appeals to teachers of modern languages (almost exclusively
English) no matter the level of instruction. The essays deal with three
main aspects of the opposition Linguistic Identity vs. Multilingualism:
language education (mother tongue – Turkish, Kurdish, and Serbian; contact
linguistics – the impact of Slavic and of German on modern Romanian; the
opposition L1 vs. L2 – Arabic, Farsi, Urdu and Serbian vs. English; and
contrastive studies – German and Macedonian); English language teaching and
learning (English as a Foreign or Second Language taught to Serbian and
Ruthenian students; English for Specific Purposes – Business English,
Information Technology English, the English of hotel terminology, and the
English of business media taught to Romanian students; English language
teaching and assessing methods to Thai, Italian, Malaysian, and Croatian
students; and the profile of the language teacher in the universities of
the F.Y.R. of Macedonia and of Romania); and linguistic issues (with focus
on some English word histories and on some English modal verbs, on French
spelling and on some French verbs of animal communication, and on the Latin
Plesiosauria Nomenclature).
