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: Speech Production and Perception
Written By: Mark Tatham
Katherine Morton

Most treatments of speech deal with descriptions of sounds and how they
are made. This book goes further: the idea is to develop a framework for a
fully explanatory theory of speech production integrating with speech
Emphasis is placed on the difference between static models (primarily
descriptive) and dynamic models that attempt to show how the basic
linguistics and phonetics are related in an actual human speaker/listener.

'Tatham and Morton have written an interesting book about speech
production and perception, summing up many of the major results in the
field.' - Peter Ladefoged, Distinguished Professor of Phonetics Emeritus,
