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: Globalization and Language in the Spanish Speaking World
Subtitle: Macro and Micro Perspectives
Written By: Clare Mar-Molinero
Miranda Stewart
Series Title: Language and Globalization

This volume considers, at global and at local levels, the spread of Spanish
today and particularly its role in the face of processes of globalization.
Spanish is frequently the dominant language in this contact situation. But
how contested is its hegemony; and how far does contact with it threaten
other languages? How are these other, weaker, minoritized languages
prospering in a world where a few strong, global languages may be taking
over their linguistic domains?
