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.

Title: Dramatic Discourse - Dialogue As Interaction in Plays
Written By: Vimala Herman

Vimala Herman argues that drama should be of particular interest to linguists because of its form, dialogue and subsequent translation into performance. Each chapter in the book contains a theoretical section in which major concepts of each framework are explained. Herman draws from classic textual examples using ethnomethodology, conversation analysis, discourse analysis and sociolinguistics, and, through these methods, is able to explore dramatic issues such as time in language, power and gender.
