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."

Subject Language: English
Abstract: Contrastive rhetoric is an interesting area of applied linguistics that is concerned with how non-native writers of English employ linguistic, non-linguistic and extra-linguistic means to communicate meaning. However, there are several methodological and conceptual issues, usually ignored, that need to be considered before contrastive rhetoric could yield meaningful results. After outlining the relationship of genre, rhetoric, and culture, this paper discusses these issues with reference to various studies in contrastive rhetoric.
