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: Chinese Matters: From Grammar to First and Second Language Acquisition
Edited By: Chris Wilder
Tor Anders Åfarli
URL: http://butikk.tapirforlag.no/en/node/1556
Description:

This book addresses topics in Chinese grammar and the acquisition of
Chinese as a first and second language. The studies presented share a
common framework and comparative perspective. Changing global perspectives
bring new language contacts into focus, and the Chinese-Norwegian
connection figures prominently among the contributions, which include
investigations of Chinese-Norwegian bilingual children and
Norwegian-speaking L2 learners of Chinese.
