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: Restructuring and Functional Heads
Subtitle: The Cartography of Syntactic Structures
Written By: Guglielmo Cinque
Series Title: Oxford Studies in Comparative Syntax

This volume collects the recent published articles of Guglielmo Cinque of
the University of Venice, one of the world's top linguists. The book is
divided into two sections, the first on restructuring, a central topic in
Romance syntax and with connections to other language groups as well. The
second part focuses on the consequences of treating clausal functional
heads as members of a universal hierarchy in the domain of morphosyntax,
offering a new perspective on many intricate problems arising in a variety
of natural languages.
