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.

Written By: Guadalupe Valdes
Joshua A Fishman

This book documents ongoing language shift to English among Latino
professionals in California. It then describes current instructional

language. It specifically examines the potential contribution of these
instructional practices to the maintenance of Spanish.
