Sounds Fascinating

By J. C. Wells

How do you pronounce biopic, synod, and Breughel? - and why? Do our cake and archaic sound the same? Where does the stress go in stalagmite? What's odd about the word epergne? As a finale, the author writes a letter to his 16-year-old self.

Title: Exploring the Spanish Language
Written By: Christopher J. Pountain

This book offers an introduction to the structures and varieties of
Spanish, covering all the major levels of linguistic forecasting:
considerable attention is paid to Judeo-Spanish and creoles. No previous
knowledge of linguistics is assumed and a glossary of technical terms, in
conjunction with exercises and activities, helps to reinforce key points.
The book is written specifically with English-speaking learners of Spanish
in mind, and readers will find a good deal of practical help in developing
skills such as pronunciation and the appropriate use of register.
