It's Been Said Before

By Orin Hargraves

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: Language Ideologies, Policies and Practices
Subtitle: Language and the Future of Europe
Edited By: Clare Mar-Molinero
Patrick Stevenson

The contributors to Language Ideologies, Policies and Practices investigate
the workings of language ideologies in relation to other social processes
in a globalizing world. They explore in detail the specific ways in which
language ideologies underpin language policy and the relationship between
public policies and individual practices. Particular attention is given to
Europe, where the impetus to social transformation within and across
national boundaries is in renewed tension with conflicting national and
supra-national interests, with these tensions reflected in the complex
issues of language choice and language policy.
