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: One Parent One Language
Written By: Susanne Dopke

Examines the discrepancy between children who do acquire two languages as a matter of course on being exposed to them, and children in similar situations who never progress past a limited amount of actively used words and a set number of rehearsed phrases in the minority language.
