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: Language, Context and Cognition 3

This book contains a collection of cutting-edge papers on methodological
aspects of prosody research. Current approaches to the gathering,
treatment, and interpretation of prosodic data are discussed by experts in
the field, illustrated by their own empirical research. Contributions focus
on the choice and measurement of prosodic parameters, the establishment of
prosodic categories, annotation structures for spoken-language data, and
experimental methods for production and perception studies (including the
construction of materials, modes of presentation, online vs. offline tasks,
judgement scales, data processing, and statistical evaluation). The volume
will serve as a handbook linking data collection and interpretation,
allowing researchers in linguistics and related fields to make more
informed decisions concerning their empirical work in prosody.
