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: Handbook of Applied Linguistics
Edited By: Alan Davies

Series Title: Blackwell Handbooks in Linguistics
Description:

The Handbook of Applied Linguistics is a collection of over 30 newly commissioned articles that provide a comprehensive and up-to-date picture of the field of Applied Linguistics. The handbook is divided in parts that demonstrate the two main approaches to the field: applications of linguistics (sometimes called linguistics applied or LA) to real world language data with the purpose of further understanding language and evaluating linguistic theory; and the problem-based approach (known as applied linguistics or AL) that investigates real world language with the purpose of understanding language use and ameliorating social problems.


The handbook presents applied linguistics as an independent and coherent discipline that seeks to unify practical experience and theoretical understanding of language development and language in use, and is a valuable resource for students and researchers in applied linguistics, language teaching and second language acquisition.
