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."

New from Cambridge University Press!


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.

World Languages Review aims to examine the sociolinguistic situation of the
world: to describe the linguistic diversity that currently characterizes
humanity, to evaluate trends towards linguistic uniformity, and to
establish a set of guidelines or language planning measures that favour the
weaker or more endangered linguistic communities, so that anyone engaged in
language planning--government officials, institution leaders, researchers,
and community members--can implement these measures.
