It's Been Said Before

By Orin Hargraves

It's Been Said Before "examines why certain phrases become clichés and why they should be avoided -- or why they still have life left in them."

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.

Series Title: Routledge Applied Linguistics

Translation is a comprehensive resource book which provides students and researchers with support for advanced study of the subject. The authors examine the theory and practice of translation from a variety of linguistic and cultural angles. Drawing on a wide range of languages, including French, Spanish, German, Italian, Russian and Arabic, they explore material from a variety of sources, such as the Internet, advertisements, religious texts, literary and technical texts. As with all books in the Routledge Applied Linguistics series, Translation is clearly structured in three main sections.

Translation includes readings by Catford, Fawcett, Ernst-August Gutt, James S. Holmes, Eugene Nida, Werner Koller, Levy, Reiss, George Steiner, Vinay and Darbelnet.
