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: A Tale of Two Schools
Subtitle: Developing Sustainable Early Foreign Language Programs
Written By: Richard Donato
G. Richard Tucker
URL: http://www.multilingual-matters.com/display.asp?isb=9781847693099
Series Title: New Perspectives on Language and Education
Description:

This volume documents a sixteen-year longitudinal study of two elementary
schools in which Spanish and Japanese foreign language programs were
implemented and evaluated. Evaluation of the programs involved documenting
children’s language development, assessing the attitudes of various
constituents, and examining critical issues related to the introduction and
successful operation of a well articulated sequential foreign language
program in schools. The volume concludes with a discussion of possible
reasons why over time certain sequential foreign language programs flourish
and grow while other programs are reduced or eliminated from the school’s
curriculum. Parallels with the theory and practice of environmental
sustainable development are used as a framework for this analysis.
