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: Field Linguistics
Subtitle: A Beginner's Guide
Written By: Terry T. Crowley

This book is a comprehensive, practical guide to field linguistics. It
deals in particular with the problems arising from the documentation of
endangered languages. Terry Crowley shows how to prepare for that task, and
how to record, analyse, and describe languages in the filed. Mixing formal
instruction and anecdote, the author shares his rich experience with the
new generation of linguistic fieldworkers.
