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."

Linguistic Field: Applied Linguistics
Abstract: Many second language learners use the heart but not the art to communicate; that is why their sentences are tone-less and emotion-less. They, therefore, fail to communicate in a second language situation effectively. One reason goes to insufficiencies of the methods proposed during the last decades. In those methods, teaching intonation as an important part to pronunciation has been either neglected or underestimated. Thus, the need for a better understanding of the communicative competence is highly felt to enlighten the candle of pronunciation in general and intonation in particular. The present paper is an attempt to review some of the methods and present a few techniques in regards to teaching intonation.
