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: A Discourse Analysis of First Corinthinans
Written By: Ralph Bruce Terry
Series Title: Publications in Linguistics #120

Terry utilizes principles of discourse analysis, cultural anthropology, and biblical studies to analyze this New Testament text. For his analysis, he draws on concepts of text organization from the work of Robert E. Longacre and Kenneth L. Pike. This study demonstrates that discourse analysis is and important tool for the study of texts, even ancient ones. Dr. Terry has formal training in both biblical studies and discourse analysis and has had field experience among the Navajos.
