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.

Edited By: Eva Hajičová
Zdena Skoumalova
Oldřich Leška
Peter Sgall

Volume 2 of Prague Linguistic Circle Papers constitutes a single whole together with Vol. 1 of the series, reviving the classical series of Travaux du
Cercle linguistique de Prague which was of a great importance for the development of European structural linguistics in the 1930s. In the present volume, nine
Czech linguists and eight authors from abroad present new ideas in various domains from basic properties of the system of language to discourse types and to history of linguistics in the 20th century. Fundamental issues of structural linguistics are discussed by C.H. van Schooneveld and F. Cermak, those of quantitative linguistics by M. Tesitelova, of sentence structure by
H.-H. Lieb, Y. Tobin, J. Panevova, T. Gross and J.
Sabrsula, discourse patterns are dealt with by J.
Hoffmannova, S. Cmejrkova and F. Sticha, phonology and graphemics by E. Battistella, A. Svoboda and P.A.
Luelsdorff with S.V. Chesnokov, and the lexicon by L.
Waugh and V. Strakova.
