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: Paul Grice, Philosopher and Linguist
Written By: Siobhan Chapman

Paul Grice (1913-1988) is best known for his psychological account of
meaning, and for his theory of conversational implicature, although these
form only part of a large and diverse body of work. This is the first book
to consider Grice's work as a whole. Drawing on the range of his published
writing, and also on unpublished manuscripts, lectures and notes, Siobhan
Chapman discusses the development of Grice's ideas and relates his work to
the major events of his intellectual and professional life.
