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."

Query:   I've been working on my master thesis in English linguistics. I will analyze the communication by E-mails, SMS, Facebook and software such as What's app.

I've prepared a short survey, which you are kindly asked to answer. At the end there is a field with a text to submit, it will be some SMS/E-mail/whatever from you in English, to whoever, eg. it can be something like that:

Cant w8 2 cu soon! Miss ya xx
or:
I am utterly miserable until I should be seeing you this wonderful evening.

My aim is to focus on different linguistic structures used in such communication, so you (both native and non-native speakers) could give me a hand! Thank you!!
