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.

Series Title: Cascadilla Proceedings Project

This volume contains 26 papers selected from the 35th Annual Conference on
African Linguistics (ACAL 35), which was held at Harvard University in
2004. The theme of the conference, "African Languages and Linguistics in
Broad Perspective," was an open invitation to go beyond traditional
linguistic theorizing and to discuss issues of greater sociolinguistic and
cultural meaning, outside of Africa as well as on the continent. The
selected papers of this volume represent a broad range of papers selected
for their significance, breadth of coverage, and depth of analysis, written
by scholars from around the globe. The complete table of contents is
available at along with
abstracts and the actual papers in PDF format.

This volume has been published by Cascadilla Proceedings Project, an
imprint of Cascadilla Press. Proceedings from Cascadilla Proceedings
Project are published in library binding. There is also free web access to
