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: Broca's Region
Edited By: Yosef Grodzinsky

As Broca's region is such a historically significant concept and rich area,
this book contains a collection of classic and recent-yet-classic papers.
Along with cutting-edge science, Grodzinsky and Amunts want to remind
readers of the celebrated past from which much can be learned. The
historical chapters include the first two papers written by Paul Broca, as
well some work by two of the most important neurologists of the nineteenth
century, Ludwig Lichtheim and John Hughlings-Jackson. Also included are
parts of twentieth century papers by Korbinian Brodmann, Roman Jakobson,
Norman Geschwind, Harold Goodglass, and Jay Mohr. Because this book both
reflects the state of the art in Broca's-region research and contains a
tribute to its celebrated past, it will be a valuable resource for student
and professional researchers. It will also stimulate further
interdisciplinary research, which is a significant contribution, as the
project called "Broca's region," encompassing the study of brain/language
relations, is far from finished.
