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.

Book Information


Title: Language and Aging in Multilingual Contexts
Written By: Kees de Bot
Sinfree Makoni
Series Title: Bilingual Education and Bilingualism

In this book different aspects of language and aging are discussed. While
language spoken by and language spoken with elderly people have been
treated as different areas of research, it is argued here that from a
dynamical system perspective the two are closely interrelated. In addition
to overviews of research on language and aging, a number of projects on
this topic in multilingual settings are presented.
