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: Texts and Practices - Readings in Critical Discourse Analysis
Edited By: Carmen Rosa Caldas-Coulthard
Malcolm Coulthard

TEXTS AND PRACTICES provides an essential introduction to the theory and practice of Critical Discourse Analysis. The essays demonstrate how Critical Discourse Analysis can be applied to a variety of written and spoken texts, by deconstructing data from a range of contexts, countries and spheres and exposing hidden patterns of discrimination and inequalities of power. TEXTS AND PRACTICES, which includes specially commissioned papers from a range of distinguished authors, provides a state-of-the-art introduction to Critical Discourse Analysis, making it an important contribution to this developing field.
