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 and Religious Identity
Subtitle: Women in Discourse
Edited By: Allyson Jule

This collection of studies from around the world connects applied linguistic
research with the complexities of gender and religion. The contributors
explore the ways in which women in various religious situations use
language to reveal and to create a religious identity of their own, and how
language itself is used to position women in particular roles. The studies
come from the USA, Nigeria, Brazil, Thailand, Canada, the UK and
Poland.The varieties of engagements explored include on-line churches,
small churches, emigrant experience, theological conversations and
religious practice experienced in and through the media. Readers in applied
linguistics, anthropology or religious studies, who are interested in language
and its power in creating lived experience, will find this book full of intriguing
and illuminating connections.
