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.

Book Information


Title: Morphology and the Web of Grammar
Subtitle: Essays in Memory of Steven G. Lapointe
Edited By: Orhan C Orgun
Peter Sells
Series Title: Stanford Studies in Morphology and the Lexicon

This collection presents papers in memory of Steven G. Lapointe, a
distinguished linguistics professor at the University of California, Davis,
until the time of his death in 1999. Lapointe's work on morphology and its
connections to other linguistic subfields has been highly influential, and
the papers here concern the relation of morphology to phonology, syntax,
and semantics, as well as the details of modern morphological theory and
its scope. The volume represents a natural continuation of the
intellectual developments in the Lapointe et al. collection _Morphology and
Its Relation to Phonology and Syntax_ (1998, CSLI Publications).
