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.

Title: Essays on Syntax and Semantics

This much needed book draws together some of the seminal essays from one of
the most important contemporary linguists, and makes them easily accessible
in one place for the first time. James Higginbotham includes a new
introduction orientating the reader to the links between the topics
covered, and provides an overview of recent contributions to the field,
particularly as they relate to his own influential work.
