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.

Book Information


Title: French Applied Linguistics
Edited By: Dalila Ayoun
Series Title: Language Learning & Language Teaching 16

This state-of-the-art volume on French Applied Linguistics includes two
introductory chapters, the first summarizes the past, present and future of
French in applied linguistics, and the second reviews the history of French
from a sociolinguistic perspective. The six chapters of the first part
cover the core aspects of the second language acquisition of French:
phonology, semantics/syntax, syntax/morphology, pragmatics,
sociolinguistics, and grammatical gender. The seven chapters of the second
part explore the contribution of French in various subfields of applied
linguistics such as language ideology and foreign language pedagogy, corpus
linguistics, and French Sign Language. A chapter studies the role of
affective variables on language learning, while another investigates
natural language and lexical creativity. The chapters on creole studies and
applied linguistics in West Africa address issues in first and second
language acquisition in complex sociolinguistic and political contexts. The
last chapter serves as an epilogue focusing on Louisiana, a region rich in
linguistic history.
