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: Re-Viewing Space
Subtitle: Figurative Language in Architects' Assessment of Built Space
Written By: Rosario Caballero
Series Title: Applications of Cognitive Linguistics 2

Combining theoretical and analytic tools from genre analysis and cognitive
linguistics, this book describes and explores the metaphors used by
architects to assess design solutions in building reviews. The adoption of
a genre perspective allows the author to explore the role of metaphor in
professional communication and to draw attention to the importance of image
metaphor in a field where the visual is of paramount importance.

This book is the first publication of the NEW SERIES "Applications of
Cognitive Categories." For more information on ACL, please visit
