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: Eastern Arabic with MP3 Files
Written By: Frank A. Rice
Majed F. Sa'id

The Middle East has become an increasingly important place in the minds and
concerns of the English-speaking world. This volume, originally published
under the title Jerusalem Arabic, is the gold standard for anyone beginning
to learn the Arabic spoken by the Palestinians, or those who live in Syria
or Lebanon.

Written in transcription using the Roman alphabet, the "Levantine" Arabic,
or Jerusalem dialect, is a central Middle Eastern dialect and recognized by
Arabs virtually anywhere—in large part due to the Palestinian diaspora—and
a good choice for anyone wishing to learn a base Arabic dialect. Enhanced
by a CD with MP3 files (replacing the former set of nine audiocassettes),
Eastern Arabic provides the best available structured, introduction to the
essential features and vocabulary of spoken Palestinian Arabic.
