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: Saying, Meaning and Referring
Subtitle: Essays on François Recanti's Philosophy of Language

Series Title: Palgrave Studies in Pragmatics, Language and Cognition

The distinguished philosopher of language, François Recanati, has proposed

that the reader is drawn into the central debate within philosophy of
language and cognitive science as to what kind of pragmatics system is needed.
