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."

New from Cambridge University Press!


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: Modern Mandarin Chinese Grammar
Written By: Claudia Ross
Jing-Heng Ma
Series Title: Modern Grammars

A brand new title for the Modern Grammars series to add to the existing
European Languages and to the forthcoming Japanese title. The grammar will
present Chinese as spoken in the People's Republic of China (specifically,
that spoken around Beijing) and give all examples in simplified characters,
traditional characters, romanization (pinyin) and in translation. It will
follow the series structure (two parts - one for grammar structures, one
for functions), with an accompanying workbook. Linguistic jargon will be
kept to a minimum throughout. We will also be creating an accompanying
homepage for the workbook with additional exercises (and a reporting system
enabling students to send their results to their tutors); this we hope will
go further to enhance the performance of the workbook.
