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: Language Engineering
Written By: Hristo Georgiev

'Language Engineering' examines the processes involved in dictionary-making
using computational linguistics, including tagging, parsing,
spell-checking, lexical semantics and machine translation. The book
examines dictionary-building in English, but also includes appendices
applying natural language processing to French and German. This book is the
first detailed description of syntax and semantics using the C(C++)
programming language, and as such should be essential reading for
researchers in natural language processing and computational linguistics.
