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: Functional Approaches to Spanish Syntax
Subtitle: Lexical Semantics, Discourse and Transitivity
Edited By: J. Clancy Clements
Jiyoung Yoon

The first usage-based approach of its kind, this volume contains twelve
studies on key issues in Spanish syntax: word order, null arguments,
grammatical-relation marking, inalienable possession, ser and estar,
adjective placement, small clauses and causatives. The studies are
approached within a broad functionalist perspective. The studies strengthen
the view that components of grammar intricately interact and that a
usage-based approach to analyzing them offers new and insightful
perspectives on some stubborn problems.
