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.

Written By: Alan Hindley

This is the first Old French-English dictionary of its kind to provide a

including students, scholars, philologists and historians. This manageable,
single-volume, dictionary is based on a large and varied number of texts up
to ca. 1350, starting from the "classics" of medieval French literature and
extending through all the genres: epic, romance, religious, moral, didactic
and allegorical texts, lyric poetry, drama, humor and satire, as well as
nonliterary historical, political and legal documents.
