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.

Book Information


Title: Phonological Knowledge: Conceptual and Empirical Issues
Edited By: Noel Burton-Roberts
Gerard Docherty
Philip Carr

This volume concerns the nature, status, and acquisition of phonological knowledge, and its place in, or relation to, the theory of language and other capacities of mind. The contributions are written by well-known linguists and phonologists and address a wide range of interrelated issues: for example, whether phonology is 'different' from the rest of language; the implications of sign language; the nature-convention debate; and the data and methods of phonology. Of interest to researchers in phonology, linguistics, and psychology, the volume will also appeal to postgraduates and advanced undergraduates in linguistics.
