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.

Title: Lectures on Conversation
Edited By: Emanuel A Schegloff

This project makes available for the first time the entire corpus of
lectures by a writer whose thought and method influenced a generation of
sociologists and sociolinguists. Originally published as two volumes, this
comprehensive single-volume edition contains the complete lectures,
beginning with the lectures delivered at UCLA, from Fall 1964 through
Spring 1968. Sacks explores a great variety of topics, but two key issues
emerge: rules of conversational sequencing, and membership categorization
devices. The lectures culminate in the extensive and formal explication of
turn-taking delivered in Fall 1967.
