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: Language Learners in Study Abroad Contexts
Edited By: Margaret A. DuFon
Eton Churchill
Series Title: Second Language Acquisition

Key Features:
- Includes studies on learners in a variety of contexts that investigate
the study abroad experience through diverse theoretical frameworks
- Useful for graduate students and advanced researchers investigating
second language acquisition and socialisation
- Also useful for educators involved in study abroad programs

Examining the overseas experience of language learners in diverse contexts
through a variety of theoretical and methodological approaches, studies in
this volume look at the acquisition of language use, socialization
processes, learner motivation, identity and learning strategies. In this
way, the volume offers a privileged window into learner experiences abroad
while addressing current concerns central to second language acquisition.

"Illustrating diverse approaches to the study of language socialization and
acquisition, this volume will surely become a key reference for applied
linguistics research on education abroad, the most celebrated and least
understood among environments for language learning."
