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: Harvey Sacks: Social Science and Conversation Analysis
Written By: David Silverman

This is the first book-length introduction to the work of Harvey Sacks, a highly influential sociologist who prior to his tragic death in 1975 developed the theories that came to be known as Conversation Analysis and ethnomethodology --theories that have grown to become extremely popular within linguistics, sociology, psychology and anthropology. This volume should be of interest to both students and scholars of Conversation Analysis and Sacks' work.
